Off to FenCon

Hey all-- off to Dallas for FenCon this weekend, and if you're in the area, I'd love to see you there!  I may even have ARCs of An Import of Intrigue to give away, so come check it out.
Here's my schedule:
Saturday  10:00 AM  - 11:00 AM  Trinity VI    Art of Conjuring: Fair and Practical Use of Magic   Description: Even magical worlds must live by rules. Authors discuss how to lay down a set of rules that move the plot along, yet don't overly restrict how characters use magic.Panelists:  C. Dean Andersson, Marshall Ryan Maresca, A. Lee Martinez, Kathryn Sullivan, Shanna Swendson, Tex Thompson *
Saturday  11:00 AM  - 12:00 PM  Chinaberry    Do Bodies Really Bend Like That?   Description: Let's talk about those cover poses that not even a contortionist could love: The bendy, twisty poses that would cause the most fit of us to dislocate a hip if we tried. (Our Guest of Honor has tried. And it earned him a Hugo Award.) Is any one to blame? What can be done to reverse this trend? (Disclaimer: Try at your own risk. The management is not responsible for injuries. Bring your own liniment.)  Panelists: J. Kathleen Cheney, Jim C. Hines, Marshall Ryan Maresca, Mel. White, Dantzel Cherry
