Here is my schedule for ArmadilloCon 36. In addition to programming and a reading (no, I won't be in the guise of my smut-writing alter ego), I also will be an assistant instructor for the writer's workshop, working with such luminaries as Stina Leicht, Ian McDonald, and Ted Chiang.
Hope to see you there.
