It seems like I have so much to write up and post here (World Fantasy Con, Clarkesworld 50, our NYRSF reading, submissions, the SFWA NYC Reception, life in general) but instead I’ll just list my schedule for Philcon, which just happens to be this weekend in Cherry Hill, NJ.

IT CAME FROM THE SLUSH PILE (460)
Panelists: Hildy Silverman (mod), John Gregory Betancourt, Alyce Wilson, Neil Clarke, Brian Koscienski
Killer toilets. Vengeful roadkill. What stories keep getting submitted to editors? Are there any hot new trends hiding in the rejection pile.
There are a lot of names up there that I’m unfamiliar with, so I should be forced to meet some new people this year. Speaking of which, I didn’t get a table in the dealer’s room this year, so I’m go to make an effort to be more social. I’m doing my best to undermine my introvert tendencies. If you see me sitting around, feel free to stop and say hi.
Since there isn’t a guest or attendee list, who else will be there?
