My Worldcon Schedule--LoneStarCon3, San Antonio, Texas

Here's my Worldcon (World Science Fiction Convention) program schedule. In addition to these panels, I'm working in the Green Room (look for me on the early morning shift) and will once again be the Voice of the Ghoddess at the Hugo Awards Ceremony, as well as working the after-Hugos party. Whew! 

In addition to my program appearances, signed copies of Castaway Dreams will be available in the Dealers Room at Old Earth Books. Support your indie bookseller and get some great vacation reading. Castaway Dreams is a finalist for the Aspen Gold Reader's Choice Award, sponsored by the Heart of Denver Romance Writers of America. The winners will be announced in September. Also, Castaway Dreams and Sea Change are now available in Kobo editions. They've long been available from all the other major vendors in all formats.

(The (M) means I'm moderating those panels.)

The Future of the Small Press
Friday 13:00 - 14:00
Gary K. Wolfe (M), Kaja Foglio, Michael Underwood, Darlene Marshall, Neil Clarke

The Fake Hugo Awards
Friday 18:00 - 19:00
Sure, the Hugo Awards have a prize for everything from Best Novel to Best Semiprozine to Best Fan Artist. But what about an award for the Best SF Novel by an Author Who Insists They Don't Write SF? Or Best Rant About the Death of Science Fiction? Come out and see what else our panel can suggest.
Dave McCarty (M), Darlene Marshall, Guy H. Lillian III

Magic Realism:
Saturday 11:00 - 12:00
Magic Realism, Science Fiction, Fantasy. How can you use these terms to describe the varied work of Angélica Gorodischer, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, and Laura Esquivel?
Darlene Marshall (M), Howard Waldrop , Rudy Ch. Garcia, Guadalupe Garcia McCall, Stina Leicht

I Married a Werewolf: Paranormal Romance
Saturday 13:00 - 14:00
Vampires and werewolves (and sometimes even zombies, as the recent Warm Bodies showed) are more complex creatures than they used to be. Moreover, over the years, they have become the subject of romance. Why, and in what ways?
Darlene Marshall (M), Carrie Vaughn, Jean Johnson, Gail Carriger, Charlaine Harris

Writing Outside Genre
Monday 10:00 - 11:00
Many genre writers also write things on and over the edges of genre. Why do they do this? How is the experience of writing in different genres different?
Ellen Datlow (M), Lezli Robyn , John Maddox Roberts, Darlene Marshall
