October 19 – 21 I will be attending the 50th anniversary of Denver’s MileHiCon. This marks my fifth consecutive year of attendance, and I’m excited to again be included. This is a fun get-together of SF/F/H fans enjoying the genres and arts surrounding the world of fantastical stories, and it’s a real kick! I also get to meet with my writer friends, which, for this year, has been far and few between. So—I’m really looking forward to this!
Here is my schedule. I am only moderating one panel this year, “Horror of Technology,” but for the rest I am participating in the readings and panels below. To link to the con’s programs, go to this link, where you can download the weekend’s events through a QR code, or get a PDF of the events, if you don’t have a smartphone.

The Reading Game is a blast! I did the very first version of it, and it’s just like The Dating Game, but for readers. A couple of authors are selected from the pool (of which I will be one this year—my second time), and are situated behind a barrier, while a selected audience member (let’s call him/her a “participant”) asks questions of the authors. Whomever the participant likes best gets to meet their author, talk with them for a little bit, and together they decide on a free book for that participant—which the author then personalizes with an autograph! It really is a blast! I’m glad I was selected again this year! I will have my books on hand to select from.
BTW, if any of you have any questions you’d for me to ask or discuss with the panel on the “Horror of Technology,” send them to me in the comments, below! I will try to at least get one of them in, if I don’t already have it (I already have a bunch).
Hope to see you all there!
