RavenCon Schedule

Happy birthday to killerweasel! May you enjoy many happy returns of the day.

Happy St. Patrick's Day to all who celebrate it!


* This Sunday morning I will be speaking at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Catawba Valley about what young adult dystopian novels may tell us about our generation and the next. It's a variation on my presentation from last year's WorldCon. I am looking forward to it!


* I now have my schedule for RavenCon. I know shiny_elfriend, jamesenge, sittingduck1313, time_shark, and vg_ford will be there: who else? Here's my schedule:

Friday
5pm: Media Panel: "Lost and Found" (I'm moderating this one.)

3pm: Literature/Media Panel: "Podcasting: The Future of SF Magazines?"

Ah, March! we know thou art Kind-hearted, spite of ugly looks and threats,
And, out of sight, art nursing April's violets!
