So the WorldCon in San Jose (Aug 16 - 20, 2018) has posted their awesome revamped program here:

Next year's WorldCon will be Dublin, Ireland, and the one after that will be in New Zealand.

My schedule is:


* Novella Hugo Finalists Group Reading:
04:00 PM to 05:00 PM (1 hour)
San Jose Convention Center - 211A
Listen to some of this year's Hugo Novella finalists as they share their work.
JY Yang, Seanan McGuire, Sarah Gailey, Martha Wells


* Panel: Mental Health & Craft: Creating with Depression and Anxiety
10:00 AM to 11:00 AM (1 hour)
San Jose Convention Center - 211C
Creating through depression and anxiety instead of taking a break and walking away from your work is sometimes the only option. At some point, nearly every creator will have to cope with these or similar issues as part of the ups and downs of life. Authors and artists talk about their techniques for working while living with a neuroatypical brain.
Vanessa Rose Phin, Arlin Robins, Martha Wells, Howard Tayler, Kate Elliott

* Series Hugo Finalists Group Reading
02:00 PM to 03:00 PM (1 hour)
San Jose Convention Center - 211A
Listen to some of this year's Hugo Best Series finalists as they share their work.
Brandon Sanderson, Martha Wells, Marie Brennan

* Panel: Fantasy Aliens
05:00 PM to 06:00 PM (1 hour)
San Jose Convention Center - 210A
We often think of aliens as science fictional beings--extraterrestrials--but there is also a rich tradition of crossover between fantasy and science fiction. Lovecraft gave us alien-like monsters in his fantasy stories, while Anne McCaffrey gave us fantastical dragons in her science fiction. As our stories and storytelling methods evolve, how is the crossover potential of science fiction and fantasy evolving with it? Our panelists will explore the many ways aliens can be fantastical and fantasy can feel alien in books, games, and beyond.
Caroline M. Yoachim, Melinda M. Snodgrass, Martha Wells, Keffy Kehrli, Jeannette Ng

Super happy MRK's team got this all fixed, now kind of bummed again I won't be there.

Any chance you'll be in Dublin? I've got my membership, and hoping the rest falls into place.

Hey, I just got done reading Murderbot 3 (and preordering Murderbot 4) and I dearly love it. Such a great character with her competence and slow coming-to-grips with her unexamined emotions! I drew out the reading for days longer than necessary to have something to look forward to.

I hope you have a great time in San Jose! (I'm in San Mateo, but I've got a toddler, so probably no bar con for me.)
