Finally! After a two-year absence, I’m pleased to announce that I will once again be travelling to Maryland as a guest at Shore Leave Convention, now in its 40th year.
I’ll be arriving Friday evening with the rest of the riffraff, and you’ll probably see me and my wife R3wandering around until Meet the Pros at 10 p.m. in the Hunt Valley Hallway, where I’ll have copies of all my books available for purchase.
My panel schedule for Saturday is as follows:
11 a.m. to 12 p.m. — Sci-Fi from the Parents’ Eye (Salon E): We all love SF/F, but how do we pass the torch to our children in an age appropriate way so that they can enjoy–or even love–a genre that we’re so passionate about?
Russ Colchamiro (M), Jenifer Rosenberg, Dayton Ward, Joseph F. Berenato, Kathleen David
2 p.m. to 3 p.m. — ATB Publishing (Salon E): Meet the contributors to these essay collections on the likes of Doctor Who, Star Trek, Buffy, and more.
Laura Ware (M), Bob Greenberger, Amy Imhoff, Derek Attico, Lorraine Anderson, Kelli Fitzpatrick, Joseph F. Berenato
5 p.m. to 6 p.m. — Continuity v. Canon (Chase): The sign in front of the table will read “Stories don’t need canon. Change my mind.”
Bob Greenberger (M), Lorraine Anderson, Dayton Ward, Joseph F. Berenato, Susan Olesen
6 p.m. to 7 p.m. — Meeting Your Idols (Chase): One of the great thrills of fandom is getting to meet beloved stars and creators. Let’s discuss encounters that exceeded expectations and those that let us down.
Hildy Silverman (M), Howie Weinstein, Diane Baron, Michael Jan Friedman, Joseph F. Berenato, Roberta Rogow
My Sunday schedule is wide open, and will consist of lots of roaming and money-spending.
Hope to see you there!
