Friday, August 8th

11:30 am — To be Announced: we pick the panel, audience picks the topic
I am moderating Greg Bear, Connie Willis and Chris Garcia. This will be a drop-down laff riot.

1:00 pm — The History of the Campbell Award
I am moderating with Dr. Schmidt. Which mostly means he will talk, I think, since his experience of this history is all first hand. I really hope Chris Garcia and Jim van Pelt can be there, because they’ll get bumped onto the panel if they show up.

5:30 pm — Sidewise Awards
Mainspring Powell's | Amazon thb | Audible ] is up for this award, though I am highly doubtful of my odds given the excellent competition.

10:00 pm — Match Game SF
kevinstandlee will be running this hilarious topical remake. I will present for the first round only, with some of my books on tap as prizes.

Saturday, August 9th

9:00 am — Strolling With the Stars
Me, Frank Wu and Stu Segal, I believe. Though if I’m up rattling around, I’m likely to appear on other days.

5:30 pm — Hugo Reception and Ceremony
I will be making a very special announcement at the reception, and I believe I will be presenting the Campbell Tiara at the ceremony, though I have not yet confirmed this.

Sunday, August 10th

11:30 am — Making a living telling lies


Miscellaneous notes…

  • I am arriving Wednesday afternoon from LaunchPad and flying out Sunday evening.
  • All my dinner slots are spoken for, so if you want to meet up, catch me for breakfast, lunch or bar time.
  • I’m supposedly involved in a couple of publication panels covering specific anthologies, but this has not yet been confirmed.
  • There is a joint Buckell-Lake-Rosenbaum-Strange Horizons party in the SFWA suite, I believe Saturday afternoon. Borderlands Books will have stock to purchase, and Toby will be doing stand-up comedy. I’ll confirm time and location when I know them.
  • Failing all else, I’m likely to be in the bar, whichever bar seems most likely.

I'm hoping to drag DH out to meet up in a bar or two! He tends to be the quiet sort when he's not actually working. Or suffering from shoulder pain. Failing that, maybe we'll stumble across each other at breakfast--I think we're in the Marriott.

Are you still going to be able to sit in for Game 1 of Match Game SF on Friday night, 10 PM, Sheraton Grand Ballroom? I put your commercial in the rotation for the first game in anticipation of this.

Sorry about the wonky italics. I didn't notice it until you replied, and then it was too late to fix it.

Don't forget -- we're supposed to be buying each other drinks fit to strike fear in the hearts of bartenders everywhere!

5:30 pm — Sidewise Awards
Mainspring is up for this award, though I am highly doubtful of my odds given the excellent competition.

I suppose it would be churlish to point out that I know who will win the award.

Of course you do, silly man. And I will be there to cheer the winner on, even in the unlikely event that it's me.

(My money is on the Chabon.)

And will there be some pictures you'll be showing too?

As for your schedule, I'm afraid you are going to have to come over to the Dealers Room to collect the package from me, (and a "nice package" it will be). I'm kinda stuck there.

Hi, Jay. According to my schedule from the DenVention folks, I am on this panel. You won't have to bump me out of the audience after all.
