These are the programming items I will be on at MarsCon this weekend.
Fiction Reading: Michael Merriam – Atrium 2 (Re(a)d Mars) – Friday 6:00pm
I will be reading from my new short story collection, Whisper in Space, and either from Old Blood’s Fate or the soon to be released Dark Waters.
Adventures in Time (A Time Travel Panel that’s Not About Doctor Who) – Atrium 2 (Re(a)d Mars) – Friday 9:00pm
Time travel romance, time travel literary novels, classic sf (H.G. Wells) – all of these play with the notion of characters who travel across time and sometimes, space, to find adventure, true love and/or to right wrongs. What are some of your favorites? Cliches you hate? What would you like to see that you haven‘t yet?

Time is Key for Artists! – Atrium 2 (Re(a)d Mars)- Saturday 6:00 pm
