My ArmadilloCon Schedule

This year, they are apparently taking it easy on me, but that doesn't mean I won't give YOU, the faithful attendees of Austin's premier literary SF convention, the full meal deal at all of my various and sundry engagements. See below for a list of where I'll be, and when. Stalking is encouraged. Autographs and photo opportunities abound. Please, no groping.

Last year Joe Lansdale tossed down the gauntlet at the Apes in SF panel, challenging all comers to produce a story worthy of a classic cover from Zeppelin Tales: "The Gorilla of the Gasbags". Our valiant panelists discuss their responses.

            April Fools! Sat Noon-1:00 PM San Marcos
B. Denton, G. Faust, M. Finn, L. Person*, D. Webb
Favorite prank announcements from writers and publishers. Our panel may suggest some for the future...

No groping? Darn! Can we trust that an "April Fools" panel will actually take place, much less where & when it's scheduled?

Yes'm! I've got a couple of cool ones to talk about, too.
