Necon Schedule

The Necon 27 programming schedule has been announced and, wonder of wonder, miracle of miracles, I have been spared the 9 AM Saturday morning slot for the first time in years! The NICK KAUFMANN MEMORIAL "WHY DO WE HAVE TO HAVE A PANEL THIS EARLY?" PANEL is no more!

This year, the poor victims of Craig Shaw Gardner and Chris Golden's early Saturday scheduling tricksterism are Bev Vincent, Matt Schwartz, Kelli Dunlap, Paul Puglisi, Jack Haringa, Darrell Schweitzer and Monica Kuebler. Ha ha, suckers! I'll be thinking of you all as I clutch my comfy pillow and curl up in my snuggly blanket!

Next year it's you, Gilman! There is no escape!

Also, this is the first year in recent memory where I'm not involved in any programming at all. I'm hoping this means no more Superballs will be thrown at my head with deadly velocity, but when P.D. Cacek's around you just never know.
