Worldcon schedule

As everyone else in the known universe is posting their finalized schedules for Worldcon, aka LoneStarCon 3, I figure it's high time I do the same. I'll be pretty busy over the course of the convention, which is pretty generous considering I've been mostly absent from the genre publishing scene these past few years. Highlights include my serving as ringmaster for the Joe R. Lansdale show, and multiple pairings with Mark Finn, some or all of which will likely involve beers and ales of various sort. It should be a great weekend, and I recommend it highly!

A Brief History of Modern SteamPunk
Friday 16:00 - 17:00
Steampunk has become a huge movement, but when did it BECOME “SteamPunk”? At what point did “Fantasy” and “SciFi” which take place in the Victorian Era, become Something MORE than Victorian writers, writing “SciFi” and Fantasy”? Where did the phrase “SteamPunk” come from, in the first place? Come explore and discuss how we got from there to here.
