The DragonCon Dossier

Once more I have been caught up in the sea of damp Batgirls and rushed as on a cataract of nerd-media fun into the heart of downtown Atlanta on Labor Day weekend for DragonCon, and so once more I post my schedule so that interested and/or attending parties may know of it. And once more I am "talent," not "useful," so I have no idea if these panels will be streamed, recorded, or acted out by ST:TNG cosplayers in a hellish cross between Javanese wayang and holodeck bushwa.
