This is one of several “first conventions” for me this year, and it’s a big one–Dragoncon has been around for a number of years, and has become one of the biggest fantasy and science fiction conventions on the East Coast.  Besides the costumes and celebrities, it’s also got quite the author/literature track, and I’m happy to have been invited to be a part of it this year.  If you’re in the Atlanta area, please stop by and say hello!  My schedule is as follows:
