For those braving Capclave (www.capclave.org) this year...if you want to know where to find Mike McPhail or myself in the crush of George R.R. Martin fans, our schedules are below. We'll also be holding a launch party for Dogs of War edited by Mike McPhail and for The Unexpected Enlightenment of Rachel Griffin by L. Jagi Lamplighter after the mass Autograph session on Saturday. Hope to see you there!
