Well, it’s about as THICK as a phone book — the Dragon*Con Pocket Program and Schedule Grids are now online. These are your most valuable treasure maps for the convention. Once upon a time I used to grab two of the pocket program — one to read in the hotel room and one to tear into shreds so I could put each day’s grid and a map of the Hyatt on my person. (That map of the Hyatt is still worth it — after 13 years I still don’t remember the names of all the rooms, which floor they’re on, or which side of the lobby. But I have a pretty good idea.)
Also be sure to check out the Daily Dragon every day — in print and online — for up-to-the-minute schedule changes, fun interviews, and award winners (because *I* have to know who won the Miss Klingon pageant…if they still do the Miss Klingon pageant…).
Always carry a water bottle and granola bar with you at all times, get in the elevator as soon as it opens no matter which direction it’s headed, and be nice to the Fire Marshall when they shut down the Hyatt….they’re only doing their jobs. You can usually sneak in through the food court anyway.
PRINCESS ALETHEA’S TRAVELING SIDESHOW will be held on Friday at 5:30, (wherever it says my reading is on the schedule). Guest stars include Leanna Renee Hieber, Mike Lee, J. K. Lee, Ada Brown, Chris McCormick, and more! Bubbles, books, and mayhem will ensue! There will be swag bags for the first 50 people, filled with tattoos, buttons, signed books, magnets, and more! Come one, come all, and tell your friends!!
