    Mentioned I was appearing before, but I can add that we'll have at least one Trek-related panel on Saturday at Dodecacon in Columbia, MO, this weekend, plus the panel on my upcoming work.

    Sorry I must have missed your original post about Dodecacon (great name for a convention, btw) - I've added it to the list now. I hope you have a good time :techman:

    FYI, I'll be appearing at Destination Star Trek Europe next weekend, at the National Exhibition Centre in Birmingham.

    Right now, the plan is for me to be on the Voyager Stage on Saturday 8th October from 2.45pm to 3.20pm, along with Jon Van Citters of CBS and Chris Cooper of Star Trek Magazine to talk about "Star Trek in print and the world of the novels".

    Right after the panel, I'll be off to the retail area to sign books and I'm told there will be copies of The Latter Fire, Sight Unseen and The Poisoned Chalice for purchase there - but I'm happy to sign any of my stuff!

    Other bits of the schedule are still in flux, but I may also be doing something with the Eaglemoss team on Saturday or Sunday.

    Full event timetable is here.

    I'm fairly sure I've met youefore at an event, though I think that might have been several years ago.

    And my last event of the year is this weekend at Paradise City Comic Con in Fort Lauderdale; I'm at the Wordfire Press booth, #1500, and also have multiple panels scheduled here.

    I will also be the guest for the hour December 22 on Route 51, on select Wisconsin Public Radio stations, live at 10 a.m. They're happy to take questions and calls whether you're in the listening area or not; the show's contact info is here.

    I’m going to be at Joseph-Beth Booksellers in Cincinnati’s Rookwood Pavilion for a book signing and discussion event next month. Here’s their events page with the announcement:

    http://www.josephbeth.com/AdultEvents.aspx

    I figured that, since Star Trek: The Original Series — The Face of the Unknown and my Analog novelette “Twilight’s Captives” were both coming out around the same time, it would be a good opportunity for a signing, and the folks at Joseph-Beth agreed. It’ll begin at 7 PM on Thursday, January 26th at 2692 Madison Road in Rookwood Pavilion (directions are here). This will be my first signing at J-B since the one I did for Only Superhuman three years before. I’ll be talking about the new book and story and answering questions, so hopefully my voice will be in better shape than it was last time. I expect there will be copies of some of my older books available as well.

    Too early to ask who is signing at the NYCC?
