Declan Finn's DragonCon schedule.

So, guess who's going to be a guest at DragonCon?


My tentative schedule is as follows:

Title: Vampires in Legend, Folklore, and FictionDescription: Long a staple of urban fantasy, vampires first appear in folklore, often unrecognizable from the versions contemporary readers and viewers are familiar with. Our panel explores how those early stories have influenced the fictional depictions they create, and others they admire.
Time: Fri 02:30 pm Location: Chastain 1-2 - Westin (Length: 1 Hour)
(Tentative Panelists: Melissa F Olson, E.J. Stevens, Declan Finn, Clay and Susan Griffith, J.F. Lewis, Dacre Calder Stoker)
And yes, that Stoker is a relative of that Stoker.

So ... yeah.
Title: Autograph Session:Time: Sat 11:30 am Location: International Hall South 4-5 - Marriott (Length: 1 Hour)
(Tentative Panelists: Declan Finn, Walter H. Hunt)
Title: The Isms: Looking at Classic Fantasy from the Viewpoint of TodayDescription: Social consciousness changes, but books are forever. Something that was once progressive today may seem anything but. Are these works simply products of their time or true reflections of the person? Let's not toss the dragonet out with the Hatching Sand and shells. *Trigger Warning*
Time: Sat 10:00 pm Location: Embassy EF - Hyatt (Length: 1 Hour)
(Tentative Panelists: Jody Lynn Nye, Toni Weisskopf, Larry Niven, Declan Finn, Lisa Manifold)
Title: Meet the Authors: Dragon AwardsDescription: Listen to the nominees of the Dragon Awards. Maybe we will even have this year's winner sitting with us. We will have past year nominees.
Time: Sun 05:30 pm Location: International North - Hyatt (Length: 1 Hour)
(Tentative Panelists: Declan Finn, Marina Fontaine, Larry Correia, Bill Fawcett, Mark H Wandrey, R.R. Virdi, Jonathan P Brazee, Aleron Kong)
So, I only get to be on panels with the queens of short stories, the head of Baen, one of the greats of SFF, the bestselling author in military UF, and two of my friends.

No pressure.
