World Fantasy Convention, Here I Come!

Off tomorrow to World Fantasy Convention in San Jose, California.  WFC is, year in and year out, my favorite convention.  It is big but not huge, with a strong emphasis on reading, writing, and publishing.  It's always attended by lots of writers, editors and agents, making it a great place to meet up with old friends and get some business done.

On Wednesday night, from 6:30-8:00, I'll be signing books along with a mass of sf/fantasy writers at Borderland Books, in San Francisco.

I'll be moderating a panel on Friday morning at 10:00.  The panel is called "Writing Human Characters, Whether or not They're Human," and the other panelists are Kate Elliott, Kay Kenyon, Laurel Anne Hill, and Shauna Roberts.  Should be a fun discussion.

Other than that, I'll be going to readings, catching up with old friends, meeting with my agent and editor, and spending a good deal of time at parties and in the bar.  Hope to see some of you there -- please, if you see me, come and introduce yourselves.

Thanks, Jana! I'll miss you, and I'll be raising my glass to you.

Thanks. I'll need one. The manuscript is due Sunday so there's that last minute "OMG! this whole section sucks" panic. No section actually sucks, but an author's brain on deadline is never rational.

Color me jealous! If you happen to trip over Tim Powers while you're there, please fling yourself at his feet and swear eternal adoration for me.

Or you can just tell him I said "Hey!" *grin*

Have a great time. Wish I could have gone. Oh well, next year it is in Columbus, OH. But if do go to that probably be working for Larry and Sally at their tables...
