Kansas City Worldcon Schedule
August 15, 2016
At long last, here it is. Most of my stuff is concentrated on Thursday and Friday, but I’ll be around all weekend. It’s a big weekend: we’re celebrating the launch of Amaryllis and Other Stories as well as the newest Wild Cards novel, High Stakes (I’m not in this one, but Earth Witch is!). I’m looking forward to seeing people with new books in hand!
1 pm: Signing at the Fairwood Press table in the Dealers Room. I’ll be dropping in throughout the weekend to sign Amaryllis and Other Stories.
3-4 pm (15:00 – 16:00): Kaffeeklatsch, 2211 (KKs) (Kansas City Convention Center) Folks generally need to sign up for these ahead of time.
10-10:30 am: Reading, 2202 (Readings) (Kansas City Convention Center)
12-1 pm (12:00 – 13:00): Adult and YA Fiction: The Once and Future Teen Friday, 2207 (Kansas City Convention Center)

5-8 pm (17:00 – 20:00): Rainy Day Books Wild Cards Signing Event for the release of High Stakes. Count Basie Ballroom (Kansas City Marriott Downtown) REQUIRES ADVANCED TICKET, which includes purchase of High Stakes. See the website for event procedures. (Note — I’m going to have to leave early so won’t be there the whole 3 hours.)
8 pm: Fairwood Press Book Release Party, in the party area of the Exhibit Hall. You can buy Amaryllis and all of Fairwood’s new titles here, and I’ll be on hand to sign. Secret: I’m also baking a bunch of cookies. Come and partake!
10:00 – 11:00 am, The Place of Bookstores. 2204 (Kansas City Convention Center)
3-4 pm (15:00 – 16:00), Superheroes: Oversaturated or Raising the Bar? 2503A (Kansas City Convention Center). So, it turns out Kurt Busiek is also a panelist on this one. Talking about one of my favorite topics with one of my favorite creators of said topic? MASSIVE SQUEE.
5-6 pm (17:00 – 18:00), Lightspeed Magazine Group Reading, 2202 (Readings) (Kansas City Convention Center)
3-4 pm (15:00 – 16:00), Autographing, Autographing Space (Kansas City Convention Center)
And I think that’s it. Please let me not have forgotten anything or left anything out…
