This weekend sees the return of Philadelphia's legendary science fiction convention, PhilCon! And once again I'll be there. If you're anywhere in the mid-Atlantic region, come down to Cherry Hill, New Jersey and join the fun!
My schedule for the con:
Saturday, November 11, 12:00 noon, Executive Suite 623: Readings.
I'll be reading at noon, followed by April Grey. Come hear something never before released to the public!
1:00 p.m., Autograph Table: Signing.
After the reading, April Grey and I shift over to the autographing table. I'll have my Sharpie, so bring anything and I'll sign it.
4:00 p.m., Plaza V: Oh, and the Places You'll Go: The 40th Anniversary of Traveller.
I'll be joining four other panelists to discuss the enduring popularity of the original and greatest science fiction roleplaying game.
5:00 p.m., Plaza II: Things You Should Read.
A panel about the best recent works you probably haven't heard of. Just in time for award nominations . . .
9:00 p.m., Plaza III: You Are Not the One.
I join a panel discussion about the trope of the "Chosen One" in fantasy and SF. Spoiler: I hate that trope, and I'll explain why.
Sunday, November 12, 12:00 noon, Crystal Ballroom Three: Foundations of Worldbuilding: Travel and Transportation.
An all-star panel discussion about an often-neglected aspect of world-building in fantasy and science fiction — how do people get around in this fictional setting?
1:00 p.m., Plaza II: Subterranean Science Fiction.
My last event of the con, a panel on classic and recent SF which takes place underground.
