It's finally official--I'm a panelist at this weekend's Baltimore Science Fiction and Fantasy Convention (Balticon 40), here in Hunt Valley, MD. Though I'm not on the list of guests, trust me, I'm on the pocket program (PDF) .

The author Guest of Honor is none other than my favorite writer, Neil Gaiman. Artist Guest of Honor is Lisa Snellings-Clark. I just took a look at the gallery on her website, and it's really cool.

As usual, Balticon has tons of different kinds of programming (literary, art, comics, gaming, music) throughout the four-day weekend. If you go, you'll enjoy it, and maybe I'll even see you there. At 11AM on Saturday I'll be reading from Eyes of Crow, and I'll also be doing panels Friday at 10PM and Sunday at 11AM.

There might be an autographing, too, although the schedule hasn't been announced. If I get a signing, I'll be giving away free autographed copies of a limited edition chapbook while supplies last. It'll contain a bigger excerpt than what's on my website.

OK, currently there's no excerpt on my site, but that'll be fixed shortly as well.



We'll see you there!

(And, um, in the car on the way there.)
