It’s that time of year again, folks. Balticon 47 is almost upon us. And that means that it is time for me to share this year’s Balticon schedule. Now, if you remember my post from last year, you’ll remember that I had a really packed schedule last year. Well, things are looking pretty busy again this year. I don’t think it is quite as bad as last year, but it still looks like a very busy weekend is in store for me.

This schedule isn’t exactly final, but it seems to be pretty firm. This year I’ve got ten panels and a reading. Two of those panels are podcast recordings and one is an audio drama production. It looks to be a very interesting time.

We start out bright and early on Friday afternoon with one of the first panels of the con.

The Shrinking Man Project LIVE!

Friday at 7:00 pm in Derby

Join The Shrinking Man, Doc Coleman, for a live recording of The Shrinking Man Project, a podcast about writing, weight loss, and life change. This year Doc and his panel of guests will be talking about what to do to pull out of slump. How to get back into the habit of diet and exercise, or writing, or any kind of sustained work when you’ve lost the drive to keep going.

Sunday at 2:00 pm in Derby
