My Can-Con 2012 Schedule

I’m thrilled to be a part of Can*Con | The Conference on Canadian Content in Speculative Arts and Literature (Sept. 21-23). It’s Ottawa’s original science fiction convention and this year will feature a strong horror and comic book presence.

Ottawa’s Mirror Comics will have a strong showing. Ottawa professors Sean Moreland and Aalya Ahmad will be promoting their horror anthology Postscripts to Darkness. And my friend and horror writer Lydia Peever (Nightface) will be hitting a few panels.

My friend Derek Kunsken has been busting his butt to put together this year’s programming. Finally locked down, below are the panels I will be sitting on. Odd note: I am moderating every panel I am on. Fear my moderating fury!

If you want to come to Can*Con, you can still register on the Can*Con site.
