Schedule of Appearances 2021

2023 | 2022 | 2021 | 2020 | 2019 | 2018 | 2017 | 2016

Welcome to the 2018 appearance schedule for Hal C. F. Astell, representing Apocalypse Later, the Arizona Penny Dreadfuls, the Awesomelys, AZ Fandom, CoKoCon or just myself.

Here's where you can find out where I'll be doing things out and about, whether I'm running events, working events or selling at events.

Come on out and say hi. Whenever I'm selling my books, they will be priced at less than you'll see on Amazon and I'll be happy to sign them for you.

Note: of course 2021 was COVID Redux, so many of the events I usually run or work or present at were cancelled, but things did start to open back up a little.

Steampunk CommuniTea Weekend

I was honoured to be asked to take part in the inaugural Steampunk CommuniTea Weekend by the fabulous Madame Askew, to present a couple of Apocalypse Later Roadshow sets. It'll be my first time streaming virtually.

Virtual CoKoCon 2021

3rd-6th September on Discord and Zoom

CoKoCon is a convention close to my heart because I helped to found it. I'm vice chair this year and will be providing an Apocalypse Later Roadshow set and taking part in an Awesomelys panel too, among other things.

Apocalypse Later International Fantastic Film Festival 2021

3rd-6th October in Phoenix, AZ

This is my own film festival. After a year out in 2020 because of COVID, ALIFFF returned for its fifth year with three full days of genre features and short films with the focus very much on the films rather than the distractions. All for a measly $60 ($75 on the door) and I'm handing out free popcorn! My books will be available for sale at this event.


  • Fri, 11.00am-11.00pm
  • Sat, 11.00am-11.00pm
  • Sun, 11.00am-9.30pm


TusCon 48

12th-14th November in Tucson, AZ

After a virtual year in 2020 because of COVID, TusCon returns to an in person convention for its 48th year. I'm on a bunch of panels, as usual, and will be MCing my better half's fashion show.


  • Sat, 11:00am-12:00pm - Autograph Session 1 in Autograph Area (with Will Herr, James Sabata and Thomas Watson)
  • Sat, 2:00pm-3:00pm - To Binge or Not to Binge in Panel Room 1 (with Brian Haas, Cameron Blackwell and Heshe Leontess)
  • Sun, 10:00am-11:00pm - Cancel Culture and the Fate of SciFi in Ballroom (with Wolf Forrest, Scott Glener, Ross Lampert and Wendy Trakes)
