FenCon programming


So … 7 p.m. Friday, Sept. 23. Who puts a little fish like me on the same panel as Joe R. Lansdale? What can I add to a discussion about horror subgenres when Joe freaking Lansdale is on the panel? Not to mention Charlee Jacob, Angeline Hawkes-Craig and Rie Sheridan. I’ll probably be tongue-tied, but hell, it’ll be fun, anyway.

My FenCon schedule is actually pretty light. They were needing warm bodies for some more panels and I volunteered for a few, so I may be busier than it appears today. We’ll see.

Sara’s having way too big an influence on Jacob. Ask him a question now and he’s very likely to answer you and end his response with “Duh!” He’s all of three years old.

I really don’t have a damn thing to say. I could mourn the Vikings’ loss from yesterday, but coupled with the way the Oklahoma Sooners are playing this season, it’s just too depressing. I could talk about the cat sitting on my front porch, looking into the house. She won’t come inside; this is the one that adopted us when we moved in a couple of years ago. She loves to be stroked, will reluctantly let you pick her up, but freaks out if you try to bring her inside.

No new writing, but I hope to make some more progress on Ulrik this evening, once the kids are in bed. The cops have come to visit Chris in the chapter I’m working on.

  1. Ooh! I’ll give you an “in” with Lansdale — Please please PLEASE tell him that Cherie Priest says THANK YOU for the blurb. I wrote him an email through his website, but I bet he never got it ๐Ÿ˜‰

  2. FenCon’s going to rock – but I hear ya. and I are on a collaboration panel with SM Stirling and Larry Dixon. Them Big Fish, Us Little Guppies. ๐Ÿ˜Ž
    You’re going to do fine. Joe’s WONDERFUL. But it reminds me of my very FIRST EVER convention panel (where I was the moderator) on Horror writing – which I didn’t realize I was qualified for. I look out into the audience into the face of Brian Hopkins and wondered what the hell was doing on that panel.

    • But you have great verbal skills, so I’m sure you had no problem with your first panel.
      I’m not really so worried about the panel, though it is a bit intimidating to be there with someone so well known.
      And hey, I get to see you and Angie in those shoes, too! ๐Ÿ˜‰
