Armadillocon ho!

Armadillocon starts tomorrow, and I'll be right there in the mix of things. Friday I'm participating as once of the sadistic torturers instructors in the long-running writer's workshop, which is always stimulating and entertaining. I'm also co-hosting the Charity Auction with Mark Finn, which promises no end to the shenanigans. The rest of my weekend schedule is as follows:
Imagining a World without Fossil Fuels
11 AM-Noon
P. Bacigalupi, M. Bey, J. Blaschke*, M. Cardin, D. Chang, K. Stauber
Discussing the implications of this all-too-plausible scenario.

Charity Auction
2-3 PM
J. Blaschke*, Mark Finn*
Come buy stuff to help raise money for the Literacy Coalition of Central Texas.

What is the Next Big Literary Movement in Texas SF/F?
7-8 PM
L. Antonelli, J. Blaschke, R. Eudaly, K. Stauber, D. Webb*, L. Thomas
In the 80s and 90s, Texas writers were intimately involved with the cyberpunk movement. Is there a current movement that's about to sweep up the new crop of Lone Star authors?

A Look Back at the Space Shuttle Program
8-9 PM
J. Blaschke, B. Frank*, J. Gibbons, A. Jackson, B. Mahoney, K. Stauber
Now that the last mission is over, let's discuss the successes of the shuttle and what it meant to the space program and the USA.

Finding Your Voice as a Storyteller
1-2 PM

Stop by and say howdy if you get a chance!
