Eager to get to Worldcon 76 in San Jose! Hope lots of you will be there. A jam-packed schedule of stuff to do (laboriously rewritten in last few weeks) means that there’s something for everyone. Hope to see new friends and old. Here’s my schedule:
Friday 10:00 am panel. If This, Then What (210DH)
What if Hannibal and his elephants had frozen in the Alps, and never made it to Rome? How can we extrapolate what would have changed as a result of one of these turning points? Where do you begin? What do you focus on when constructing an alternate history? What stays the same? Along with Kaja Foglio, Yasser Bahjatt, Steven Silver, Harry Turtledove.
Friday 12:00 noon. Trading Card Awards Ceremony (210E)Authors and fandom luminaries receive their Science Fiction Trading Cards – and sign them! Free packets of cards will be handed out to all attendees.
Saturday 3:00- 4:00 pm. My presentation, The Magic of Plotting (212C) Plotting techniques you can use to bring out your best story. Learn to bring forth the magic within: your creativity–and give it form in the world: your story!

Sunday 7:00 pm. See you at the Hugos!
