Curious? Here are a Few Answers!
Cause Horde means Family, Fandom, Community, and all things Geek!
What Exactly Do I Do?
All kind of things!
Officially? I am the Fantasy Literature Track Director for Dragon Con.
Recently, I joined a great group of fellow vets in their podcast
Sci-fi Shenanigans. Bad Ash Publishing is letting me help out with some behind the scenes stuff also.
Who Am I?
Well, my name is Cisca Small. Despite being one of the shortest members of the Horde I not exactly what most think of as short. I am the oldest of spawn of my parents and can honestly say I don’t remember a time in my life without some sort of Geek thing going on.
When most kids were saying they wanted to be a doctor, teacher or whatever I was telling people I wanted to be “Just like Captain Picard only female and with hair.” Gods bless my parents, they never once told me that Starfleet was an impossible dream as a kid.
2001, a year that really took things to a new level. Why? Cause I attended Dragon Con for the first time. As a great friend says, “the home planet you never knew you left.” For me Dragon Con is more than a Con, it is community and many people who have become family to me. As I type this I realize that I started going at the age of 18, which means that Dragon has been a fixture of my entire adult life.
Over the years I have missed a few, running off to join the Army will do that. Officially? I was a medic. Unofficially? I became a “special projects” specialist. (Not my term, but it sounds better than the other options.)
Due to the twists and turns of my life I have ended up with two Bachelors of Science Degrees, a fearless Viking who severs as my True North and a whirl wind of friends, family, and of course the Horde.
Who says Fantasies don’t come true and Magic is not real?
Who Is In Horde?
Good, Question. For now I will refrain form dragging to many on here. A few who you will see me mention are Thug, Munchkin, Chuckles, and Viking.
