[conventions] Updated WorldCon schedule

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.

10:00 am —Kaffeeklatch
Sign up that morning for an hour with my undivided attention.

2:00 pm —Rosenbaum/Lake/Strange Horizons Party
In the SFWA suite at the Sheraton.

2:30 pm —Signing
The astute reader may notice a schedule conflict here. Ahem.

5:30 pm — Hugo Reception and Ceremony
I will be making a very special announcement at the reception, and I will be presenting the Campbell Tiara at the ceremony.

Sunday, August 10th

11:30 am — Making a living telling lies


Failing all else, I’m likely to be in the bar, whichever bar seems most likely.
