BayCon is the San Francisco Bay Area’s longest-running (and largest) fan-run convention.
This year it’s at the San Mateo Marriott, and the theme is Dystopias and Utopias. I will be there all four days, and I’ll be appearing on several panels.
Here’s my schedule, with times and the room locations for the panels:
FRIDAY MAY 26
3:00 Historic Urban Fantasy (Synergy 4)
with Kevin Andrew Murphy and Alex Westmore
SATURDAY MAY 27
2:30 Fantastic Beasts and How to Write Them (Connect 5)
with Kevin Andrew Murphy, Chaz Brenchley, Helen Stringer, and Mark Gelineau
4:00 Girls Will Be Girls (Inspire 1)
with Loren Rhoads, Margaret McGaffey Fisk, Linden Tarr, and Carrie Sessarego
SUNDAY MAY 28
5:30 Romantic SFF / Paranormal Romance (Connect 5)
with Jean Martin and Kevin Andrew Murphy
Note: I’ll be moderating this one.
MONDAY MAY 29
1:00 History and Anthropology for Writers (Connect 4)
with Kevin Andrew Murphy, Gregg Castro, and Marie Brennan
Of course I plan to visit with friends, view the art show, visit the dealer’s room, and take in some other panels, because a lot of them look like they should be fun.
