MarsCon 2010 Con Schedule

Several of my friends celebrate birthdays in the next few days. Many happy returns of the day to scribblerworks, mjolnir1964, altariel, pwilkinson, lukeski, thrihyrne, gallifreygal, seemag, and heidi8. May each of you enjoy a wonderful year to come.

I'll be appearing at MarsCon 2010 at the end of this week. Here's my con schedule:

* Panel at 10pm: Podcasting: What's Hot, What's Next!

* Presentation at 11am: You Say Shoggoth, I Say Hobbit: The H.P. Lovecraft-J.R.R. Tolkien Connection
* Book Signing/Autograph Session at 3pm

* Panel at 12 noon: Young Adult Science Fiction: Classic Traditions and Current Trends

In other news...

* The blog for Walking Tree Publishers, which specializes in Tollkien-related books, has been syndicated for LiveJournal as walking_treepub.

* The bimonthly St. Austin Review, which calls itself “the premier international journal of Catholic culture, literature, and ideas”, has just released its January/February 2010 issue, with a special emphasis on C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien. Matthew P. Akers' essay "Distributism in the Shire" is available as a free download.

* Lavie Tidhar asks "What Do We Talk About When We Talk About Steampunk?"

"What are you looking at so hard, Dad?"
"I was looking for Earthian logic, common sense, good government, peace and responsibility."
"All that up there?"
"No. I didn't find it. It's not there any more. Maybe it'll never be there again. Maybe we fooled ourselves that it was ever there."
- Ray Bradbury, "The Million Year Picnic"

A Tolkein-Lovecraft panel? Cool!

Thanks so much! I hope others have the same reaction. It's a solo presentation, so wish me well. ;) It's sort of based/expanding on this article of mine.

Major luckinesses are travelling in your direction right now. I just hope they reach you in time!

Thanks so much! They're most appreciated!!!

I just reread At the Mountains of Madness. There's something about revisiting that story in the middle of winter, when there's snow on the ground and ice on the lake, that really ratchets the experience up a notch. Tekeli-li!

Thanks so much!

And happy birthday to you! *hugs* I hope you're feeling much better. I'm still so excited about your wonderful Who-vian news. I do hope your novel will be offered as one of the unabridged Who audiobooks, too. That would be so much fun! I'm sure everything's hush-hush now, but I do look forward to updates when they're possible. In the meantime, have a happy day of celebration and get well soon!

We're working out the RavenCon schedule now. I'll post it as soon as I know something more concrete. Thanks for asking!

Oh Williamsburg is awesome!! My mom's family lives an hour away from there. Sidenote. Anyway, have a wonderful time! Those panels sound especially interesting.

How neat is that? It is indeed a beautiful place. It's also about 10 minutes from one of my favorite sites in the world, Historic Jamestowne. So I was one happy camper! Thanks for the kind words about the con and my panels. It was great fun. I hope your week's going well!
