So there's a con this weekend. Once again, my schedule:

6:00-7:00: Sexual Harassment & Assault In Fandom. No description, and I'm the only one on it; if cluegirl and aquila_dominus are there that early, they are so drafted!

11:00 - 12:00: Unpacking the SF QUILTBAG. So human sexuality is a continuum and "normal" is a null concept. The term LGBT has been around for nearly 30 years, pointing to some areas on that continuum. How has SF/F/H literature featured these aspects of the continuum? Let's name some outstanding examples. How have lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender fans fared within fandom?

12:30 - 1:00: Reading: Shira Lipkin. As usual, if you can only come to one thing, come to the reading!

1:00 - 2:00: How Bad Can A Hero Be?. He may lie, cheat, steal, curse, flirt mercilessly, and disembowel bunches of hapless Darklordian henchman with a quip on his lips and a song in his heart. But can she step on her hamster's head in a fit of pique? Let's see where the boundaries of our sympathy for heroes, heroines, and their stories lie.

I may or may not be onsite tomorrow; if I am, I'll be merch-jedi-ing for s00j, but will not be otherwise engaged.

Ah, taking on Protagonist-Centered Morality. Nice!

I like to think of "Dexter" more like Villain Protagonist.

Always makes me happy to take that on.

Oh. Play that scene from Season One of NuWho, where the Slitheen and the Doctor discuss a killer letting someone go.

I want to go to your first two things on Sunday. Too bad I'm not local!

I hope you will post about the QUILTBAG panel.

Even better - it was recorded for the Outer Alliance podcast!

Loved your reading as always. Thanks especially for reading "The Library, After" which I'd been meaning to track down for a while now.
