Detcon1 Schedule

Snoopy

This weekend I’ll be joining the amazing filker and all-around fun person Tom Smith as co-Toastmasters of the North American Science Fiction Convention, aka Detcon1 here in Detroit.

I’m really excited about this one. There’s going to be a ton of great people, and from what I’ve seen, the convention staff have been doing some incredible work. I’m getting preemptively bummed because I know I won’t have time to see and hang out with everyone. Too many cool people, too little time…

This is what the weekend currently looks like:

Thursday

  • 8 pm: Opening Ceremonies, Ambassador Salon 1

Friday

  • 1 pm: Writing Humor and Comedy in SFF, Ambassador Salon 2
  • 3 pm: Fanzines and Professional Writing, Mackinac West
  • 6 pm: Gender Roles in Genre Fiction, Ambassador Salon 1
  • 8 pm: Mass Autographing Session, Ambassador Salons 1&2

Saturday

  • 11 am: Reading, Joliet A
  • 4 pm: Kaffeeklatsch with Jim C. Hines, Kaffeeklatsch 1
  • 8 pm: Extravaganza – Masquerade & Literary Awards, Ambassador Salon 2

Sunday

  • 2 pm: Closing Ceremonies, Ambassador Salon 1

For the reading on Saturday, I’m torn between reading my story for the next Chicks in Chainmail anthology, or an excerpt from Unbound. Any preferences?

Who else is going to be there?

Excellent!

Did you hear that Biden will be speaking down the street on Thursday? Could make travel rather interesting...

Yeah. I'm hoping to get in before it gets too crazy.

Have fun at DetCon! :) The schedule sounds great!

Maybe the excerpt from Unbound could be read out loud at DetCon? Unfortunately I can't attend DetCon, but I hope that it'll be enjoyable for everyone else who's attending. :)

I'll be there. Either would be good but I'd prefer Unbound.

Or I could just make sure I have a copy of both, and then see who shows up and let folks vote.

Whatever you read will be good so listeners will win whatever you choose.

Rolling around, a reading and six panels.

Particularly amused by the Robocop panel.

:::waves to Dr. Phil, above.::: I'll be on the Robocop panel! See you there!

See you at the humor in SF panel. *If* I get downtown--when I booked back in December, nobody mentioned Biden coming in at the same time . . .

Yeah ... I'm gonna try to give myself a bit more driving time on Thursday :-/

I will be there, starting Friday. I think. If I seem shaky, you might not want to ask why.

(My travel plans for the weekend have been a swiftly tilting planet of conflicting expectations.)

Do you know when that next _Chicks In Chainmail_ anthology comes out & the title? Pre-ordering minds want to know.

All I've been told is that it will be some time in 2015. No info on the title yet, sorry.

Thanks for the heads-up!
