Orycon is Oregon's premier science fiction convention. This year's guests of honor include William F. Nolan, Mark Roland, Jason Andrew, and pays tribute to the memory of Jay Lake. The event includes a dealer room, cosplay competitions, writing workshops, and many panels and sessions worth your time. The full event schedule is here.
I'll be there all three days, participating in various panels, readings, signings and other fun things, or just wandering around, listening to other smart people and checking out their amazing toys. If you'd like to say hello, here's my own schedule at OryCon.
