Thirty years of Dragon Con!

It’s an annual tradition for me, and this year will be my eighth time attending. This time around, I’m an attending professional. If you plan to attend, these are the places where you will be able to find me over Labor Day weekend.

NOTE: All Dragon Con schedules are tentative until the convention ends on Monday. Even then, things are a bit suspect. As things change before the convention, I’ll update this post.

Edit for 8/29: Updated the rooms for the American Science Fiction and Fantasy Media panels for Sunday. Also updated the times for the Thursday events.
