WorldCon and Free Stuff, Part Deux

New and Noteworthy about WorldCon:

My Thursday, 2:30 p.m. Reading/visit is in Hyatt Agate C

Orbit is very kindly providing free, signed copies of Orphan’s Journey to Heinlein Society Blood Drive donors, “while they last.”  The books, that is.  Donating blood isn’t that tough.  And one lucky donor will take home one full set of the Jason Wander books.  Be there to donate Friday, 10:00 a.m. – 3 p.m., Sheraton Tower D.

Saturday’s 10:00 a.m. panel, Digging up SF – Paleontology in SF,  in CCC 502, gets two thumbs way up.  Eric Flint, Michael Swanwick and Robert Sawyer.  Also, to round out the group with a mere mortal, me.  I’ve done panels in the past with Mike and Bob.  Both are terrific, and I’m looking forward to meeting Eric Flint.

Sunday’s 1:00 p.m. panel, Heinlein – The Hugo Years, in Con Center 505, will be terrific for two groups: those who know Heinlein already, and those who don’t.  Joining me will be the Heinlein Society’s Heinlein Scholar, and author of the upcoming, definitve bio of Heinlein, Bill Patterson; Baen Books’ publisher Toni Weisskopf (Baen has published several Heinlein titles) and Heinlein scholars Tom Trumpinski and Brad Lyau.
