|Allegory with a Boy Lighting a Candle|
in the Company of an Ape and a Fool (1577-9) El Greco
Worth it, though. I had a blast.
Looking Forward to Last Thursday. Monday 10am. A time travel panel moderated by John Chu. I was still a bit foggy when I walked in but the ban on discussing paradoxes made me chuckle.
Authors Ken Altabef, Gillian Daniels, and Daniel M. Kimmel will be reading selections from their works.
Shira Lipkin, Julia Rios, Ken Schneyer, Gillian Daniels
I was unsure what to expect from this panel and, in preparation, put together as many notes as I could. It started with a discussion of the best place to find short stories online and became advice to audience members on how to submit your work. We discussed the future of print vs. online publications and the increased presence of places like Lightspeed Magazine and Clarkesworld Magazine at the Hugo and Nebula Awards.

Whew. Writing all that up took longer than expected! I'm not sure I'll have such an in-depth summary of conventions I attend in the future. Suffice to say, this was pretty awesome and I'm looking forward to next year.
