ArmadilloCon 30

There's no rest for the weary...

This weekend I'll be a programming participant at ArmadilloCon 30, here in sunny Austin, TX (and for "sunny," read "ungodly hot"). If you're in the area and planning to attend, here's where you might find me (or might want to avoid if you don't want to find me... and you know who you are).

Sa1300DZ Cartoon Network
Sat 1:00 PM-2:00 PM deZavala
B. Foster, Martinez, Roberson*, Rosen, Salvaggio
Our panelists discuss recent highlights from this essential cable channel.

Sa1400R Reading
Sat 2:00 PM-2:30 PM Robertson
Chris Roberson

Sa1900DW Book Covers
Sat 7:00 PM-8:00 PM deWitt
Denton, Picacio, Hart, Roberson, Rosen, Spencer*
What makes a great -- or not-so-great -- cover? How much difference can it make to the success of a book? How can the artist and author collaborate?

Su1300PN From Agent to Editor to Publisher to Store
Sun 1:00 PM-2:00 PM Phoenix North
Finn, G. Haldeman, Leicht, Roberson, Rosen*
We examine the process and decisions between an author finishing a book and it showing up on store shelves.

Wow, that's a lot of convention, at this rate you should just come to Mid-Ohio Con up here in Sunny, temperate Ohio. But, y'know, no one big ever comes to this show, the first time I went Harlan Ellison was there, and they had Dave Gibbons one year, and this year Joe Kubert is there, but y'know, no one anyone has heard of.
Okay, I'll shut up now. Hope the con goes well anyway.
I'm definitely not opposed to a trip to Ohio, Greg!
