On and On to DragonCon

Once more the good people of DragonCon have seen fit to make me an ornament of their program, and if you can spare any time from shouldering your way through the humidified masses perhaps I shall be an ornament of yours as well. This year, the beloved Ken and Monte Show adds a second session! Also, as of this writing, THREE of my panels look to be solo affairs, although I suspect ringers, backups, and reinforcements shall be provided come the day.

As always, nobody tells me (and nor should they) whether any of these panels shall be recorded, streamed, beamed, or choreographed in the terpsichorean language of the bees.
