Shore Leave schedule is ready
The authors have just been sent the (hopefully) final schedule of panels for the Shore Leave convention this coming weekend. In addition to the usual Meet the Pros signing event, I’m scheduled for five panels, four of which will let me talk about Only Superhuman, one of which will let me talk about DTI: Forgotten History. Here’s the list of my appearances:
Superheroes In Between: In Media Other than Films or Comic Books – 7 PM, Derby Room
Christopher Bennett, Kelly Meding, Peter J. Wacks, Keith R. A. DeCandido, Alan Kistler. No doubt this will mainly be about the superhero novels that folks like myself, Kelly, and Keith have written (which could include my Spider-Man: Drowned in Thunder and X-Men: Watchers on the Walls as well as Only Superhuman), but judging from the title, maybe there could be discussion of video games, toys, whatever.
Meet the Pros — 10 PM, Hunt/Valley Corridor
The annual mass signing event where all the author guests will be available to autograph whatever you bring or buy. Of course Only Superhuman won’t be out yet, but I’m hoping there will be something OS-related for me to sign, even if it’s just promotional flyers.
Time Travel: Writing it and Reading it – 10 AM, Concierge Suite
Peter J. Wacks, Christopher Bennett, Greg Cox. We’ll be discussing our various time-travel books, including my DTI novels and Greg’s The Rings of Time and Assignment: Eternity. Judging from the title, maybe we’ll be talking about other time-travel books we’ve read.
I have no other panels Saturday, but I’ll still be around the con.
Media Tie-Ins vs. Original Fiction – 10 AM, Chase Ballroom
Keith R. A. DeCandido, Aaron Rosenberg, Kathleen David, Peter David, Michael Jan Friedman, Christopher Bennett, Ann C. Crispin. Another round of a panel topic we had last year comparing our experiences in tie-in work versus original writing.
Tor Books: New and Upcoming – 11 AM, Salon A
Marco Palmieri, Christopher Bennett, Greg Cox. Of course we’ll be talking about Only Superhuman, but no doubt Greg and Marco will be talking about other books they’re editing for Tor.
Female Action Heroes – 1 PM, Chase Ballroom
Greg Cox, Rigel Ailur, Christopher Bennett, Ann C. Crispin. Yes, it’s a chance to tout OS some more, but it’s a timely topic in the year of The Legend of Korra, ScarJo’s Black Widow, and Anne Hathaway’s Catwoman. Let’s get together and talk about all the awesome female heroes we have these days!
