FogCon Panels!

I’m going to be up at FogCon this weekend and sitting on two panels:

“Can a Telepathic Cop catch a Teleporting Criminal? What about a Precognitive one?” Saturday at 4:30 pm.

“Favorite Non-SF/F Mystery Authors?”
Saturday at 8 pm.

They should both be fun discussions, if you’re going to be at FogCon! Come by and say hi!
