Discussion in 'Trek Literature' started by dansigal, Jul 17, 2013.
Here's what I'm hoping is my schedule.
The grid we were sent says that it's a two-hour panel from 1-3pm. Doesn't matter to me, as I can't do it at any of those times.
You left a few Trek Lit-relevant people unbolded, although they haven't done Trek Lit recently. Melissa Scott wrote DS9: Proud Helios and VGR: The Garden. Steven H. Wilson wrote three stories for DC's Star Trek Vol. 2 (a Trelane sequel called "A Little Man-to-Man Talk," a Pike-on-Talos story called "Door in the Cage," and the Saavik/Valeris focus "A Question of Loyalty"). And Rigel Ailur wrote "Brigadoon" in Strange New Worlds 10.
I find I am double booked three times throughout the weekend and I await the con to tell me where I really should be. It's messier than usual which is a shame for the 35th anniversary. In addition to the above, I will be the center square for Friday night's Hollywood Squares and serving as auctioneer the charity auction right after.
Oy. We (This is our collaborative account) are supposed to be on the collaboration panel and we aren't listed. We had signed up for the historical fiction workshop too, and I don't even see that listed.
Jeez, now I really wish I could go this year. "Door in the Cage" is one of my favorite Trek comics. I'd love to get it signed, but mostly, I'd just want to tell Steven H. Wilson how much I enjoyed it.
I just realized that I'm on a panel opposite of the Boogie Knights concert. Drat!
What happened to Mystery Trek theater and the roast?
^ MSTT is still on Sundays at 5:30pm.
I stopped producing the roast because:
a) They started to cost too much money;
b) They became too much stress for too little reward; and
c) We ran out of people worth roasting who were willing to sit in the chair.
You can hang out in the bar or the dealer room without paying the entrance fee. No guarantee of meeting the special guests, but it has been known to happen.
Any news from Friday? I'll be there first thing Saturday morning!
Star Trek: Seekers sounds really exciting!
My only qualm is that I don't like the idea of not giving each book an actual title, just a number. But seeing the Sagittarius and the Endeavor back in action in the Taurus Reach? We loves it.
Welp, now's the time to get caught up on Vanguard...
Well, TrekLit just a got a little more aweesome.
I'm just off to change my underwear...
Hmm, sounds interesting. I'll probably give it a shot, though I may wait until after I finally catch up on New Frontier and the Typhon Pact stuff. The cover idea is amazing though.
Is there any news from today, or will any more announcements be saved until tomorrow?
^Announcements don't much happen at Shore Leave anymore. Generally anything we're cleared to announce gets spoiled in the catalogs beforehand anyway. When it does happen, it's more the exception than the rule.
I loved the excitement that Shore Leave used to bring, but at the same time it is fun to have surprise announcements pop up all year long.
