After a long hiatus, I am returning to Westercon this year, where I was originally scheduled to participate in five panels. I have placed my notes for each panel in the form of posts, which you are welcome to read.
Fake it till you make it went to other presenters, but the posts I had prepared are still here. Fantasy World Building was changed to Of Wizards, Dragons and Klingons: Fantasy and Sci-Fi World Building.
I have also included a link to my presentation from Westercon 34.
Each panel’s notes requires several posts. Click a panel title below to go to the first post for that panel. At the bottom of each, you will find a link to the ones which follow.
When the panel turned out significantly different from it’s early incarnation, I explain the difference in the first post.
