oh yeah, Readercon

Two kinds of chocolate chips cookies for the bake sale (terrible phone photos) are done. I'll be at the bake sale Saturday morning—come say hi, and by all means please bring something if you're able, no need to ask in advance!

I'll also be on one panel:

Books That Deserve to Remain Unspoiled.
Jonathan Crowe, Gavin Grant, Kate Nepveu, Graham Sleight, Gayle Surrette (moderator).

In a 2013 review of Joyce Carol Oates's The Accursed, Stephen King stated, "While I consider the Internet-fueled concern with 'spoilers' rather infantile, the true secrets of well-made fiction deserve to be kept." How does spoiler-acquired knowledge change our reading of fiction? Are some books more "deserving" of going unspoiled than others? If so, what criteria do we apply to determine those works?

Sunday 10:00 AM, Salon G

And I'll also be chasing the kids around the pool at various points, or hanging out in the lobby, or what-have-you.

And now, I must go pack, because in my experience packing expands to fill all the available time.
