I’m going to be at Capricon in Wheeling, Illinois this weekend, saying smart things in public, expounding on the great mysteries of the universe, and possibly drinking at least one beer.
Here’s my schedule for the convention. Do come around, won’t you?

Beginning, Middle, and End – Saturday, 02-13-2016 – 11:30 am to 1:00 pm – Willow
