It’s hard to believe that Shore Leave is turning 35 this year. My first time down was for Shore Leave 3 and it was pretty much just me and Howard Weinstein. This year’s guest line up has first time visits from William Shatner, Brent Spiner and Saul Rubinek which is pretty cool.The number of authors has exploded, as well, meaning there’s way too many panels that I want to either participate in or attend. The schedulers seem to think so too, so the pocket program shows me repeatedly double booked. I’ve sorted things out as best I can and this is where you can find me for real:Friday6 p.m. – Sci-Fi Squares (Valley). This is a first time activity and I was honored to be asked to replace Paul Lynde in the center square.7 p.m. – Charity Auction (Hunt). I’ll be the auctioneer and this should be fun.10 p.m. – Meet the Authors. We’ll all be there along with a bookseller so fans can grab our latest releases or backlist titles.
