FYI: I just got word that the panel on the 4400 book program has been moved to 11 am on Sunday. The change won't make the printed programs, alas, but look for us in the Hunt Room at eleven.

I've read this book. It's great. I just wish I could be at Shore Leave to get it signed!

I'm hoping to go next year, too.

I expect reports!

I'm planning on getting a sandwich and maybe having half before the panels and the other half between panels.

You're not the only one. I have both The Essential Batman Encyclopedia and Hellboy II: The Golden Army freshly off the press. Woo hoo.
I hope they have the Batman book for sale, because my husband is incredibly into Batman.

Re: Shore Leave

Okay, as Keith and Greg are blazing the trail for talking about non Trek stuff at Shore Leave, I'd like to mention that I'll be bringing along some trailers and exclusive clips from the Stargate and Blake's 7 audio dramas and talking about the series at the "Stargate and Beyond" panel; I may have to chase up a CD player, though...

Re: Shore Leave

Hey if anyone from the forum (who's not actually on a panel) is going, can they twitter the PB panel and give us the link? I'm in love with twitter and it would be sweet to get the real time updates for those of us that can't go.

There will be at least four. Two by me, one by Dayton Ward and Kevin Dilmore, and one by Dave Mack. The first two take place before the end of the series while the next two will continue the saga beyond the series finale.
Greg Cox and David Mack 4400 books picking up where the series left off? I'm sure there will be interesting ST book announcements this weekend but they are going to have a hard time getting me as excited as this news is.

I've already got Cox's first 4400 book but haven't started it yet since I'm in the middle of reading Neal Stephensons System of the World, which is taking a long time...

Can't wait to hear the report, Keith. I love that Shore Leave falls on my seven-year board "anniversary"; I can't think of a better way to celebrate than to post eagerly in response to some always-welcome book news.

Is the PB panel today (fri) or tomorrow (sat), though?

Ah, that's about 2AM for me, so I'm going to bed

If they mention me, I guess I'll see it in the morning...

Re: Shore Leave

I believe I shall be purchasing every single one of those!

Highlights (well, they're all magnificent, but...):

*Two DS9-R books
*More Myriad Universes - Pocket must see that as a very strong line, considering #1 has barely begun appearing in bookstores
*The Romulan War!
*James Swallow!
*Margaret Wander Bonanno!
*That A Singular Destiny cover doesn't seem to bode well...
