My Shore Leave 42 Schedule

Posted on

Finally, I am getting to once again walk the halls of the Hunt Valley Inn as I attend Shore Leave 42. Accompanying me will be a legion of authors, many of whom I have not seen in years. Me and the Crazy 8 Press gang will have a table and I look forward to chatting with fans and friends alike.

In addition to my emcee duties, I will be on a scad of panels (and I apologize now for flogging my Kickstarter campaign for Thrilling Adventures 2022) at each one. Oddly, this will be the first year in memory where I won’t be kicking off Saturday program with an hour of bable and trailers. Glenn Hauman will be handling that solo for a change. Here’s my schedule for those attending or curious as to how I will spend my weekend.
