Shore Leave schedule

I’ve been attending Shore Leave since their third show and haven’t missed one since their fifth. And look, it’s year 27 already. Where does the time go?

The schedule got finalized and I now know where I’ll be throughout the weekend. In addition to the below, I’ll be doing some Emcee duties with a stellar line-up of guests, many of whom I have yet to meet.

For those attending, I look forward to seeing you there.

Friday 10 p.m. – whenever
Meet the Pros Party
Wherein all your pals sit at tables, poking fun at one another and signing books

Saturday, 10 a.m. – 11 a.m.
Solo hour where I’ll talk about my current writing projects, my current collections at DC Comics and show movie trailers (don’t know which ones yet since they haven’t arrived).

Saturday, 1 p.m. – 2 p.m.
The Giant Red Ball: Four Years of Alias
Greg Cox, Keith R. A. DeCandido, and yours truly babble about a favorite show.

Saturday, 4 p.m. – 5 p.m.
The Process of Tie-In Novels
Greg Cox, Howard Weinstein, Susan Wright and yours truly simply babble.

Saturday, 8 p.m.
Masquerade, with yours truly as a judge

Sunday, 10 a.m. – 12 noon
Mystery Trekkie Theatre
Peter David, Mike Friedman and yours truly poke fun at something truly wretched or truly great.

Sunday 5 p.m. to 6 p.m.
The Bob and Howie Show
A perennial favorite, we’re now slotted as the Showcase pre-show and we’re fine with that since the crowds need a diversion while the stage is dressed.

And let me plug my kids:

Saturday, 11 a.m. – 12 noon
Boogie Knights. The quintet perform some old time favorites and if you’ve never sampled these guys, make a point of checking them out. Katie is now in her third season with the group.

Sunday, 6 p.m.
Harry Potter and the Half-Brood Prisoner of the Sorcerer’s Secret Goblet of the Phoenix, the parody Showcase written and performed by the fans. Robbie will be one of the many silly participants.


  • Nomi and I will be at Readercon, of course. Have a great time!

  • Terri Osborne

    I look forward to making you laugh heartily during the Masquerade, Bob. Don’t worry, no Mets bashing this year. At least, not during my sketch. 😉

    See you Friday. 😀

  • Shoreleave 2005 was my very 1st one, and I loved every minute of it! It was so fun and most of the stars were very friendly. It was a great chance to hang out with my friends and to make new ones…Looking forward to many more!
