Next week I’ll be heading off to Spokane to attend Sasquan, the 2015 Worldcon. What with all the science fictional controversy this year, this worldcon should be… interesting.
Here’s my schedule. If you note any gaps, please insert the item “Bar.”

Thursday 14:00 – 14:45, Hall B (CC)
What Prose Writers Can Learn From Comics

The Craft of Short Fiction
