This weekend is Continuum, Victoria’s state SF convention and, for this year, the National SF Convention. I seem to be the last person to have organised a timetable, but I have finally succumbed. Based on my previous experience of Continuum I probably won’t attend half of these panels, but this is my list of good intentions.
2-4:30 – writing class
6pm D&D at Notions Unlimited
9am Pelham room – Take the pebble from my hand (mentoring) *if I get there early enough
10 am Argyle room – New faiths for new worlds (religion in SFF)
11 am Pelham room – the Big Bad, fairytale villains (I’m on the panel, this is not optional)
12 noon – Kelly Link’s guest of honour talk
2pm Lincoln room – Winter is Coming. Just cos it’s Game of Thrones. 😛
3pm Pelham room – Other entities
8pm costume parade and maskoblo
10am Pelham room – Elizabethans are awesome
11am Argyle room – Steamplay
12 noon Alison Goodman guest of honour talk
2pm Lincoln room – Apocalypses through the ages (again not negotiable: I’m on the panel)
3pm Argyle room – Revenge of the Nerds
4pm Argyle room – Where has all the SF gone?
5pm Drummond – Hey I game too!
6pm 3 panels competing for my attention: The Crafty Middle Ages, Steampunk Squalor and Art Masterclass! Clone, where art thou?! – WTF, when am I supposed to eat?!
8pm Awards ceremony
Going home, exhausted.
By Monday I expect to be exhausted so I’m not planning much.
11am Argyle room – Suffragettes in the Citadel
2pm Faraday room – Fandom for a cause
