That second one will be interesting for sure! (If a bit daunting.) I've known Brandon for years, and he introduced me to Tom recently. Brandon and I actually met Moshe at the same time—at a party at World Fantasy in Montreal. That was quite a fateful night, but it was over a year (or even two?) before Moshe finally got around to reading the Elantris manuscript he told Brandon it was fine to send him.

I'll be bringing some old Leading Edge issues to my first panel, and some manga to my third. And a winning smile, of course.

Neat schedule. Sounds really exciting. I also like the part about the winning smile. ^o^
