This weekend, the family will be at Lunacon. We get there Saturday morning since Kate insists on spending Friday night with her “twin” Nicole as they celebrate their 20th birthday (which is really Saturday). My goodness, I will only have one teenager left to contend with.
Anyway, Kate will miss out on Friday night’s Boogie Knights performance but that doesn’t mean you should miss it.
Here’s my schedule of panels for those attending. I like that I’ll be sharing the table with some old friends, some new ones, and meeting others for the first time.
