My Dragon*Con schedule

I received my schedule for Dragon*Con, a really big scifi/fantasy/what-have-you convention in Atlanta from September 1 - 5. If you're going, this is where I'll be (besides slowly traversing the huckster rooms). The descriptions are from TPTB at D*C, which I've modified here and there so they make more sense.

Thursday September 1:

Although not part of the official D*C schedule, the annual Star Party is becoming a fun tradition. It'll be at 7:30 p.m. at Emory University, and details are online. It's a fund raiser for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society; I'll be there as well as George Hrab, Pamela Gay, and Nicole Gugliucci. We'll have telescopes set up!
