Armadillocon off the port bow

Tomorrow is Armadillocon in Austin, and I still haven't quite caught my breath from Archon 31/NASFiC in St. Louis this past weekend. That'll teach me to look at the calendar more closely. In any event, fellow No Fear of the Future contributors Chris Nakashima-Brown, Jess Nevins and Alexis Glynn Latner will be in attendance as well. Here's my schedule (not included is Friday's day-long writers workshop):

In presupposing that only a "chosen one" and/or
demi-god can save the world, are Star Wars, Harry

anti-humanist at the core?

I'm quite looking forward to Alan Porter's "Hypotheticals" panel, which I understand was originated in the U.K. by Alan Moore and some other folks whose names escape me. It should be an interesting romp. Also, we're finally doing an actual Revolution SF panel after several years of threatening to do so--any time you get Mark Finn and Rick Klaw on the same panel, watch out. $20 and a jelly donut says apes manage to creep into the conversation at some point.
