If you'll be in San Jose over Memorial Day weekend, come join the fun at Baycon! Here's my schedule:
Friday, May 27 2:30 PM Writing Rituals: Conventions can be great places to get re-energized as a writer -- or can be distractions. It's a great time to re-think (and perhaps try some new) writing rituals. Panelists discuss some of their favorites. Friday, May 27 8:00 PM Meet-the-Guests Reception: Come meet the Master of the Carnivale, BayCon 2011 Chairman Robert Toland. Mingle with our guests as our Toastmaster Martin Young regales us with interesting anecdotes and introduces our Guests of Honor. Saturday, May 28 10:00 AM Book View Cafe: Book View Cafe started as a cooperative to make the authors' out-of-print books from major houses available to a new generation of readers, but it's since expanded to original publishing. Book View Cafe members talk about the cooperative. Sunday, May 29 4:00 PM Themed Reading: Science Fiction: Come listen to two of our authors read from their science fiction works.
I'm not sure what I'll read; depending on time, maybe "The Price of Silence" or "Mother Africa," both of which earned Honorable Mention in The Year's Best SF. Any requests?
