ArmadilloCon Schedule

ArmadilloCon already has a schedule, which is a pleasant surprise.  Usually you get these things one to two weeks before, not nearly two months of lead time.  Still, it's nice to have a sense of what I'll be doing (besides the Writers' Workshop-- submission deadline is June 15th!), and which subjects I might want to bone up on so I know what I'm talking about.

So, here's my schedule, which I would presume is subject to change.  I'll talk more about it when we get closer to the actual event (July 25th-27th).

Protecting the Indigenous Tribes 
Fri 8:00 PM-9:00 PM Room E 
Maresca*, Compton, Wright 
Indigenous peoples confront a diverse range of concerns. What should be done to ensure their existence? 

40 Years of D&D 
Fri 9:00 PM-10:00 PM Room F 
Benjamin*, Finn, Maresca, Marmell, Sarath, Wright 
How did D&D inspire authors? 

Sat 1:00 PM-2:00 PM Room E 
Richerson*, Brown, Maresca, Oliver
Discussion of Aztec mythology and why it isn't used in more genre stories. 

Alcoholic Drinks in Fiction 
Sat 5:00 PM-6:00 PM Room F 
Maresca*, Acks, Allen, Downum 
Discussing the drinks mentioned in stories, movies and tv. 

Sat 8:00 PM-9:00 PM Southpark A 

Best Cons from Genre Books 
Sun 10:00 AM-11:00 AM Room D 
Webb*, Blaschke, Maresca 
Not many people are good at writing capers. Which books do it right? 

Overhauling a Character 
Sun 11:00 AM-Noon Room F 
Maresca*, Bracken, Carl, Chang, McKay, Rogers 
Now that you have written a book, go back and rewrite your main character.

My only comments right now are:
  1. I'm moderating THREE panels.  That should be interesting.
  2.  I have an hour for a reading.  I'll have to think of how to make the best of that.
