I'll be a guest at Vericon (http://www.vericon.org/) this coming weekend. The Guest of Honor is Ann Leckie and I am very much looking forward to meeting her. But the whole lineup of guests is really amazing, to the point where I wonder what I am doing in it.

Here is the schedule. Are these not entirely awesome panelists and topics?

PAMELA DEAN'S SCHEDULE

Friday:
7-8 PM: Writing Fast and Slow
"There are nine and sixty ways of creating tribal lays, and every single one of them is right!" If you look at writing advice books you'd think there was only one true way to do it, but here we have a panel whose writing methods are extremely different from each other.
Greer Gilman, Pamela Dean, Wesley Chu. Moderator: Jo Walton

8-9 PM: Fantasy Worlds that Feel Real
Worlds are complex and fascinating -- how do you integrate the fantastic with imagined history, culture, economics, religion, folklore, and everything else to come up with a world that feels solid and magical at the same time?
Fran Wilde, Pamela Dean, Greer Gilman. Moderator: Seth Dickinson

Saturday:
2:30-3 PM: Book Signing

3:30-4 Reading

4-5 PM: Metaphysics
How do we write about realities that function really differently? When it rains on you when you lie, or when you can't understand what doubt is?
Ada Palmer, Pamela Dean. John Chu. Moderator: Jo Walton

5-6 PM: What can we learn from Shakespeare?
Language, pacing, worldbuilding -- Shakespeare has it all. But Shakespeare is so great, can we find our own ways to be influenced by him and not get swallowed up?
Jo Walton, Pamela Dean, Greer Gilman. Moderator: Ada Palmer
