It is convention time again. Time for what will be my last con of the 2016 convention season. Yup, I’m talking about the con in my back yard: Capclave. If you’re going to be in the Gaithersburg, Maryland area and you enjoy good fiction and want to hear all kinds of authors and other artists talk about the nature of modern writing, I know where you want to be this weekend.

I’ve been a little behind in posting lately, but I wanted to take the opportunity to post my schedule for the convention. So, without further ado, here is where you’ll find me.

Friday 7:00 pm: Son of Steampunk (Ends at: 7:55 pm) Bethesda

Panelists:Doc Coleman, Elektra Hammond (M), Elaine Stiles
Steampunk genre caught on in ways nobody expected, spawning offspring genres (Dieselpunk, Atompunk, Clockpunk, etc.) achieve the same popularity? The panel will discuss these new subgenres, what defines them, and their staying power.

Sunday 3:00 pm: Beyond Just Dirigibles and Dragons (Ends at: 3:55 pm) Frederick

Panelists:Doc Coleman, William Galaini, Emmie Mears, Betsy A. Riley (M)

That’s it. I hope to see you there.
