Convention weekend

This weekend, it’s Capclave, in Gaithersburg, Maryland, which I always enjoy. As usual, you’ll be able to find me much of the weekend at the Fantastic Books table in the dealers’ room (scheduled to be open Friday from 4 to 7pm, Saturday from 10am to 6pm, and Sunday from 11am to 2pm). And I’ll be on programming. At the moment, I’m scheduled for five panels (as always, things may change between now and the convention, so check there for the latest updates):

Friday, 6pm in Salon A: “How Not To Get Published” with Neil Clarke, Mike McPhail, Hildy Silverman, and Michael A. Ventrella.

Saturday, 10am in Frederick: “Does Hard Science Fiction Have to be Opaque to Non-Techies?” with John G. Hemry, Mike McPhail, Nalin A. Ratnayake, and David Walton.

Saturday, 12n in Rockville/ Potomac: “Small Press Publishing in 2018” with Neil Clarke, Shahid Mahmud, Joshua Palmatier, Lezli Robyn, and Sean Wallace.

Saturday, 11pm in Bethesda: “Eye of Argon” with Hildy Silverman, Michael A. Ventrella, and perhaps a special mystery guest. Also, a brand new feature sure to delight even those who’ve suffered through “The Eye of Argon” before.

Sunday, 10am in Rockville/ Potomac: “Abusing Authors” with Sarah Avery, Scott Edelman, Will McIntosh, Lawrence M. Schoen, and Michael A. Ventrella.

Hope to see a bunch of you there.
