Spain

Aussiecon IV

The Australia trip is rushing toward us like a freight train. So much to do, so little time.

Just got my schedule from Aussiecon IV. This is still subject to change... but barring that, here's what I'll be doing at worldcon.


FRIDAY SEPT 3
=============
3:00 pm A GAME OF THRONES on television - the HBO series
(I do not want to disappoint anyone, so please note, this
will just be me talking and answering questions, I do NOT
repeat NOT have any footage, trailers, teasers, or even
slides to show).

SATURDAY SEPT 4
===============
11:00 am reading from A DANCE WITH DRAGONS

12 noon signing

1:00 pm interviewing Melinda M. Snodgrass about her career in books and TV


SUNDAY SEPT 5
=============

12 noon panel: Jack Vance and the Dying Earth

1:00 pm kaffeeklatsche (advance signup required)


MONDAY SEPT 6
=============

2:00 pm panel: Zombie v. Vampire Smackdown

This just covers the official programming during the days. The real heart of any worldcon are the parties at night, so those of you attending your first con will want to keep that in mind, and plan on hanging around until the wee hours.

I expect that the Brotherhood Without Banners will have a party, but don't know the details. Anyone here from the BWB who can enlighten us?

Australian worldcons have always been terrific. See you in Melbourne!

Two Guys

The first guy is a man with no name, who is up to no good. The second guy is a man with no name, who is up to no good. ((Maybe they'll get names eventually, hey. Our red-headed whore did. Just sayin')) The first guy has been a guard and a garda, he's slept with beasts and eaten a girl, he knows that anything that can go wrong will go wrong, he's seen sleeping dogs and flying saucers, and met Kavalier and Clay's greatest creation (or did he)? The second guy is not simple and he's not high, but he's been to the beach and crossed the Mersey, seen his share of doctors, and once went down in flames. Oh, the humanity, the humanity.

Two More Guys

These guys are bigger than the first two. And they have names too!

The first guy loves goats, the second likes his meat tough. The second guy never conquered India. Is it rabbit or rarebit? The first guy might know. The guy who had more dingers than anyone but the guys who liked the juice, well, the second guy isn't that guy, or even the guy who chased that guy all summer. The first guy has been a nobleman, a moron, and a hog. The second guy holds a record: the biggest little guy. The first guy has been every flavor of cop. The king of the deep knocked the second guy topsy turvy.

I hope that was confusing enough. By this point, even I've lost track.
