Worldcon Schedule

We’re a week out from Worldcon in Kansas City, so I thought I’d post my schedule. Please note that I have neither a reading nor an autograph session this time around, so if you’d like me to sign something please feel free to flag me down after panels or in the hallway, and we’ll make it work. My handwriting is pretty terrible anyway, doing it in a hallway isn’t going to degrade the quality of the product that much.

The panels!
