In the better late than never category, I realized I haven’t yet posted my DragonCon 2017 schedule. Allow me to remedy that now.
Keep in mind, if you can’t make it to any of these planned events, feel free to hit me up in the hallway, between panels or at the bar. I’m a nice guy (or, I try to be, anyway), and I like nothing more than saying hi to friends and fans. Don’t be shy. Introduce yourself.
I’m officially at the con from Friday, Sep. 1 – Sunday, Sep 3rd.
Panel Info Title: Here Comes the Gener-AL!
Time: Fri 04:00 pm Location: Embassy EF – Hyatt (Length: 1 Hour)
Description: When you’ve got magic as a weapon, you change the nature of warfare. Who are some of fantasy lit’s greatest strategists and tacticians, and what makes them so successful?
Title: Masculinity in Star Wars
Time: Fri 07:00 pm Location: A706 – Marriott (Length: 1 Hour)
Description: It’s a common refrain that Skywalkers are whiny & Han Solo was the man’s man. From the original trilogy to Rogue One, from the Prequels to The Force Awakens, the definition has varied. How have these depictions changed, & how have our values shaped how we view masculinity in our heroes?
Title: Across the Veil: Ghosts, Spirits, & Souls in UF
Time: Sat 02:30 pm Location: Chastain 1-2 – Westin (Length: 1 Hour)

Time: Sat 5:00pm Location: Vendor area – 2 1st floor booths – 1400, 1402, 1301 & 1303

Title: Malevolent Magic
Time: Sat 10:00 pm Location: Chastain 1-2 – Westin (Length: 1 Hour)
Description: Often in Urban Fantasy, magic proves more detrimental than helpful. Our panelists discuss this aspect of their own magic systems & the role it plays in their stories.
Title: Delphic Oracle
Time: Sun 01:00 pm Location: Embassy EF – Hyatt (Length: 1 Hour)
Description: The Oracle at Delphi used great magic to see the future. Now our writer guests will channel her power to tell us a story–one word at a time.
