I'm really looking forward to meeting Toni Weisskopf (Managing Editor of Baen Books) and Harry Turtledove (Bestselling SF/Fantasy Author)

Hope to seeing you there!


  1. Sounds like fun. I'm curious. Are you on the skeptic or believer side of the debate? Have a great time.

  2. Count me as a skeptic. Originally, when I listed the panel as one of the possiblities, I thought it was more along religious lines (they didn't have a description other than the title). That I'd be a little better prepared for, but it'll work out fine.
