Publisher's Summary

Lost at the Con tells the tale of a drunken political journalist and his dangerous assignment to a science-fiction and fantasy convention. Though he'd rather be at home drinking his liver to death, his spiteful editor delivers an ultimatum: Take the assignment or lose the steady paycheck. Since Cobb can't afford to turn down the job, he heads to Atlanta and dives headfirst into the realm of Griffin*Con, renowned the world over as the Mardis Gras of geek conventions.
There, he finds all of the science-fiction, fantasy, and cosplay he would expect, but he also finds something more sinister: a seedy underbelly of geeky debauchery, slash fiction, booze, sex, and drugs. Can he make it through this assignment without snapping and winding up on the front page himself? Or will the entire experience change him in ways he never imagined possible?
A masterful blend of fictional Gonzo journalism and geek culture that is sure to please audiences inside and outside the geek community.

Right from the start Cobb (for god sakes NOT Cob!) is hilarious!!! A great turn around of character and every geek/nerd and non, should read this! By the end the friendship between our main character and a homeless man is beautiful, and wholly believable, even made a tear in my eye! A fantastic writer Mr Young presents this book in a great performance. The end of this book left me wanting more!! What happened next Bryan??!
