I’ll be at Life, the Universe, & Everything 32 in Provo, Utah on February 13-15 (Guest of Honor, Orson Scott Card!). I’m a lot more lively in person than I am on this blog (self-evidently), so if you want to hear me in person, now’s your chance!
10AM – Write What You Don’t Know: Bill Housley, C. Michelle Jefferies, Julia H. West, Karen C. Evans, Nathan Shumate, Stacy Whitman (M)
3PM – Xenobiology 101: Steven C. Peck, Nathan Shumate (M), Eric James Stone, Daniel Coleman, Roger White
5PM – The Screenwriting Process: Craig Nybo, Fiona Ostler, Nathan Shumate (M), Scott William Taylor
6PM – Originality: Daniel Coleman, Dave Butler, Eric Patten, Nathan Shumate (M), Roger White, Stacy Whitman
1PM – Unusual art forms: Carolyn Nicita, Nathan Shumate (M), Sarah Seiter, Cliff Green
5PM – ePublishing: How to Start: Dene Low, Jaclyn M. Hawkes, Nathan Shumate (M), Robert J Defendi
So apparently I’m the default moderator — five of six panels! If I plan things carefully, I can encompass all five of those panels into a sprawling meta-narrative whose import only becomes apparent at 5:50PM on Saturday. (Bad news: I share no panels with Card. Good news: I’m not moderator on any panels with Card. Ambivalent news: Only (?) two of my panels are at the same time as Card’s panels.)
In between, I’ll mostly be in the dealers’ room where I’ll have a table selling Arcane I and II, Space Eldritch I and II, The Golden Age of Crap, and perhaps a few applehead totem figures that I want to start work on. (No creatures in jars this time, I’m afraid — they really didn’t sell at all, and are heavy to transport.) Dave Butler, Carter Reid and I have requested to have all of our tables together to form an Avenue of Awesome.
