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 estellye, jamesenge, sittingduck1313, time_shark, and vg_ford will be there: who else? Here's my schedule:

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

9 pm: Solo Literature Presentation (multimedia!): "The Rise of Young Adult Dystopias"

12pm: Autograph Session/Book Signing (Note: I will have copies of The Intersection of Fantasy and Native America: From H.P. Lovecraft to Leslie Marmon Silko, Past Watchful Dragons: Fantasy and Faith in the World of C.S. Lewis, and The Magic Ring with me.)

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

4pm: Literature Panel: "Putting the Adult in Young Adult Stories"

1pm: Media Panel: "Chuck"

3pm: Literature Panel: "Stephenie Meyer vs. J.K. Rowling: The Art of Magic vs. Pretty Vampires" (I'm moderating this one.)

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

Ooh, say "hello" to James Enge for me :) A great guy as well as a font of endless information on Latin literature.

Will do!

thank you. :D

You're most welcome! *hugs*

Alas, our schedules clash somewhat. Here's mine (all in the Gaming Room, table numbers TBD):

1900 Friday: The Stars Are Right
1300 Saturday: Arkham Horror
2000 Saturday: The Stars Are Right
0800 Sunday: Munchkin (player's choice between Star Munchkin, Munchkin Cthulhu, and The Good, The Bad, And The Munchkin)

BTW due to your familiarity with A Shoggoth on the Roof, I was wondering if you could offer your thoughts regarding this.

It looks like you've got lots of Lovecraftian goodness planned!

The basic idea is that the musical is in fact a ritual designed to summon Cthulhu in the final scene (the libretto in possession of the H.P. Lovecraft Historical Society is a bowdlerized edition with all the dangerous bits removed).

Ha! That's brilliant!

Your RavenCon schedule looks amazing. I'm excited for you! :D

Thanks so much! I'm excited, too. :)

Heh heh, that last panel on Sunday looks like it could be pretty interesting.

Got a feeling it could devolve into a Meyer hate-fest.
Mar. 18th, 2010 12:44 pm (UTC)
Yep, I suspect I'm going to have to ask everyone to play nicely, as I know for certain that there will be some Meyer fans in attendance (at the con, and probably at the panel) as well as Rowling fans. It will be... interesting.

Oh brilliant! I'd love to come to the launch party. Do you know which night it will be?

Also, I need to remember to bring my copy of Not Your Father's Horseman, if you'd sign it for me. ;)

(And dammit, your character won't go away. Now she's making trouble in book 3!!! *grin*)

LOL! Yes! *fist pump of triumph* I can't wait until book 3 is out!

I'm looking forward to seeing you soon.
