Okay, so, yeah.
This weekend I'll be at SoonerCon 21 along with Michael Golden, Peter S. Beagle, Eric Flint, and several hundred close personal friends, including A. Lee Martinez, Brad Denton, Caroline Specter, Ethan Nahte, Adrian Simmons, Rhonda Eudaley, and many others who I am surely forgetting at the moment.
I've never conventioned in Oklahoma, nor stayed there for more than twelve hours. Oklahoma City is, in fact, a lovely town, with lots to offer. It's definitely an oasis, surrounded by a lot of small and/or grimy towns. And I say this with some authority, for I have been to Lawton, and found it wanting.
That said, I am very excited about this convention and I'm looking forward to all of the frivolity that is sure to ensue. For those of you on the fence about whether or not to attend, or maybe you're thinking, "Hmmm, I wonder what Mark actually does at these things," well look no further. Here's my panel schedule:
Friday 5PM Comic Book to Movie/Book to Comic Book
Saturday 10AM Oh No! It's MAINSTREAM
Saturday 12PM Writing Realistic Humans
Saturday 8PM RADIO SHOW
Sunday 9AM Koffee Klatch Saturday
Sunday 12PM Cryptozoology in Urban Myth: Hate to Say It, We Need Bigfoot
Sunday 1PM Dinosaurs and Why the SF/F Community Loves Them
Sunday 2PM AUTOGRAPHS
Hope to see you in Oklahoma City this weekend. If you're at the con, please stop by and say hello. You now know where to find me.
