World Fantasy Con schedule  
Heading off bright and early tomorrow to exciting Columbus, Ohio for the World Fantasy Convention. I'll be on the following program items:

Thursday 9:00 pm: The Logic of Absurdity, Fairfield room
Exploring the difference between a completely absurd fantasy and a satire which more or less describes the real world in a way absurdist fantasy doesn't. Is the difference merely the degree of distortion?
Eric Flint, Gerald Warfield, David Levine (m)

Saturday 1:00 pm: The Fantasy of James Thurber, Morrow room
Ginjer Buchanan (m), Andy Duncan, David Levine, Sharon Reamer, Elaine Isaak

Kate and I are also going to Tron Night, a 20-minute IMAX preview of the new movie, at the AMC Lennox Town Center on Thursday night. Tickets are sold out but each of us can bring one guest.

Apart from those... look for me in the bar!

A panel on the fantasy of James Thurber? Now I'm really sorry I'm not going.

I must confess I'm not as familiar with Thurber as I'd like. Any stories you feel are particularly worthy of note?

The 13 Clocks is definitely the best of his children's books. There's some fantasy assorted among his essays and written sketch pieces, and I'd be hoping someone could dig it out for me, for I see on inspection that my Thurber collection is not as complete as I'd hoped.

Oh, you fucking lucky man! :(

I was fortunate enough to find out about Tron Night just a few hours before it opened for tickets, and jumped as soon as I had the chance. I have no idea how long it took to sell out. Didn't mean to rub your nose in it! :-(

Oh, heheh, that's okay. I'm just envious of your ability to see that so early. I'm going to expect a report, though! ;)

It's only 20 minutes, not the whole thing. They're building buzz.
