FenCon is a DFW-based science fiction and fantasy literary and filk convention coming up this weekend. It will be held at the Crowne Plaza North Dallas in Addison. I’ll be there as a panelist and will also give a reading and sign some books, so if you’re in town, please come out.
Here’s my schedule for the con:
5 p.m.: Reading. Director’s area. I’m not sure what I’m going to read yet. I might read from my novel in progress or from a short story I’ve been working on. I had four people come to my reading at ArmadilloCon. They were wonderful people, granted, but I’d like to see a few more faces this time. Can anyone help me make it as many as five or six?
8 p,m.: Superhero fiction panel, Addison Lecture Hall. “Description: We will discuss novels with superheroes as main characters. How has this genre developed and evolved over the last few decades, and where do the pros think that it's going?” I’ll be moderating this one, and I’m definitely looking forward to it. Other panelists are Keith R. A. DeCandido, A. Lee Martinez, Beverly Hale, and Caroline Spector. Should be a great panel. I’m nervous. Come support.
11 a.m.: Signing, Gallery. I’ll have copies of Devil’s Cape available and look forward to meeting new people.
7 p.m.: Random Novel Reading, Trinity VI Programming. “You won't believe this: Panelists read random passages from randomly selected books. Not for the fainthearted. Oxygen may be required. Be prepared to laugh uproariously.” I’ve got no idea what to expect with this one, but am looking forward to it. I enjoy reading and hamming it up, so there you go.
If you can make it to FenCon, please do!
