My Dragon Con & LoneStarCon3 Schedule

Two conventions separated by 1000 miles in one weekend?
No problem.

This weekend, I'll be attending both Dragon Con and the World Science Fiction Convention (AKA LoneStarCon3 AKA Worldcon). I'll be bearing gifts -- come get your free deluxe Loteria art cards at selected panels and presentations at both cons. :) (See above.)

And -- here's my full public itinerary. See you there!

The Future of SF/F Art in a New Publishing Landscape
Sunday / 3pm

What is the future of the artist in science fiction and fantasy? The present and future of traditional and digital publishing is constantly and rapidly evolving in SF/F. Publishers have disappeared.
