I have firm plans to put in an appearance at the following five events. (Yes, my fall schedule will be brutal
.) Three of them are academic conferences, and I will be presenting an academic paper at each. Two are fan/industry conventions, and I doubt I will be doing anything in an official capacity. Either way, if you are going to be at any, please drop me a line and let me know! Comments are screened in case you wish to leave me your contact information.
