If you’re at Balticon 44, come say hello!

For years I’ve wanted to attend Balticon, a convention held Memorial Day weekend in Baltimore, Maryland, and reputed to have the best New Media track of all current conventions (thanks to the hard work of Paul A. Fischer and his cronies). This year it’s scheduled for 28–31 May 2010, at Marriott’s Hunt Valley Inn, and I’ve been given the honor of appearing on the program. There are many SFF personalities on the bill whom I’m looking forward to meeting, far too many to list here; suffice it to say that I’m the rawest rookie among these giants in the field. Still, if you’re there, please feel free to say hello. Here are the events for which I’m scheduled:

Michael Spence Reading
Which is precisely what I shall be doing. Enough said? Monday, 11:30 am, Salon D Saturday, 2:00 pm Salon B
Compare and Contrast Edgar Allan Poe with Other Well-known Writers of Horror
Yep, it’s English final exam time again! Join Robert R. Chase, Michael Critzer, Ray Ridenour, and me as we pit EAP against those who would be his peers. Saturday, 3:30 pm, Salon B
Fahrenheit 451 Fifty Years Later
Has any aspect of English-speaking culture escaped Bradbury’s indictment? Keith R. A. DeCandido (author of the Serenity novelization, many Star Trek books, and much more SFF), Wendy S. Delmater, Tom Doyle, the most wonderful Laura Anne Gilman (author of the marvelous Retrievers series), and I hash it out. Sunday, 6:00 pm, Salon B
Variant Frequencies Live!
If you haven’t heard Rick Stringer‘s bar-raising audio anthology of SF/fantasy/horror/etc. stories, here’s your last chance to hear it done live. Rick raised the bar for audio production in short-story podcasting. Here he presents a story (with yr. obt. svt. as guest voice) that should caution any of you planning to move anytime soon. Sunday, 9:00 pm, Chesapeake

Plus various informal get-togethers, dinners, and attempts to see if the bar carries Dr Pepper. As Number Two was so fond of saying, “Be seeing you.”
