Having missed a couple of years while helping out friends with the runup to LoneStarCon, I'm going back to DragonCon this Labor Day. I'm excited, and hope to see fans who couldn't make it last time. Right now I have a tentative schedule--not final, as the email clearly said--and I've asked for a signing slot and a reading slot in addition--no idea if those are possible, but...don't ask, don't get. Below the cut, the tentative schedule. (EDIT NOTE: autograph session & reading added on Sunday.)
