I’ve been putting this off to write, but it’s time to report on VCon. I missed the Friday night opening, but went there Saturday and Sunday to participate in three panels: Religion and Atheism in SpecFic, Violence in SpecFic, and Kid Lit. All three went well (meaning I didn’t lose the power of speech and at least made partial sense when I talked). The panel on Violence in SpecFic had the added bonus of having David Weber as a fellow panelist. He is a prolific author of military SF, and a man who is very thoughtful about his writing and SF in general.
Many thanks to the VCon staff and volunteers, especially Sandra Wickham, the coordinator of the panels. Next year, the theme is time travel. I might even try to figure out a costume for that one.
