Fencon IV

As I may have mentioned before, this weekend I'll be attending Fencon IV in Addison (that's North Dallas, essentially, for those who don't know the area). I'll only be at the show on Friday and Saturday, since Sunday I have to haul back to Austin to take Georgia to a birthday party (hey, there are bounce houses involved, it's fairly critical). If you're in the neighborhood, though, and want to come see me ramble on in person, here's where you might be able to find me:

Friday 8:00 PM Programming 1
All Things Joss
Description: A discussion of Joss Whedon and his creations.

Saturday 10:00 AM Programming 3
20th Anniversary of Star Trek: The Next Generation
Description: After a bit of a shaky start, TNG ran for seven years on television and spawned two other hit Trek series before moving on to the big screen. Fans discuss why this show is still special after all this time.

Saturday 11:00 AM Programming 3
Who's Your Doctor?
Description: Everyone has their own favorite incarnation of the Time Lord. Conversation may get a bit spirited, and we ask you to turn off your Sonic Screwdrivers.

Saturday 2:00 PM Main Stage
Book Business Basics
Description: What are the steps from manuscript acceptance to publication? How are royalities paid? How is promotion of a book determined? These questions and more are answered.

I won't get to go, sadly, since my TARDIS is in the shop.

But our associate Daniel Geduld from B7 Media will be there, doing his presentation of the new BLAKE'S 7 audio series. Check him out if you have a chance!
As discussed before, I'll be there, and I'm looking forward to the Book Business panel. One of the best panels at Armadillcon this year was the Samll Press panel, which got into a bit of the book business.

For the con itself, I went last year and thought it was great...they seem to be doing a good job up there.
I had a great time, and enjoyed your book business panel with Toni Weisskopf, Paul Stevens, Leah Smith, PN Elrod, and... I think that was everybody.

Anywhatsit, 'tis a shame we didn't get a chance to meet in person. Maybe next time.
Lillian Stewart Carl is the one you're almost remembering there. And thanks. I think that panel went surprisingly well, and I don't think I embarrassed myself too badly on it.

Next time we're at a con, though, by all means come over and say howdy. I'm usually sitting in the bar when I'm not roaming around the dealer's room looking at all the stuff I can't afford, or bloviating on some panel or other.
