Appeal for help

As you know, Bob, I am part of the Eightsquared Bid for the 2013 Eastercon and will be spending much of Eastercon on a bid table. We would be very grateful to anyone who could help us with this, by offering an hour or two.

My Eastercon schedule

It's going to be a busy con for me. I shall be working in Green Room as usual, and, of course, there is the EightSquared bid of which I am a part, so I will have con-desk duties, too.
And then there's programme:


12.00 noon 'Gender Parity on Panels', Commonwealth, Paul Cornell, Farah Mendelsohn, Juliet E McKenna, Emma Peel, Kari Sperring. (Thanks to birdsedge for reminding me of this one.)

7.00 p.m. 'A History of Feminist SF in Britain', Room 12: Lesley Hall, Roz Kaveney, Andy Sawyer, Maureen Kincaid Speller, Kari Sperring.

9.00 p.m. 'What happens at Milford?' Room 38: Jacey Bedford, Terry Jackman, Steve Kilbane, Kari Sperring. A look at the long running professional writers' workshop.

11.00 p.m. 'No Country for Old Men?' Room 41: Avedon Carroll, Martin Easterbrook, Dave McCarty, Kari Sperring. (No, not a discussion of the film, but of sexism and sexual politics within sf fandom. Guess why I'm on it. The clue is in the clothes.)

4.00 p.m. 'Subverting the context (alternative universes in fan fiction)' Room 41: Tanya Brown, Kate Keen, Kari Sperring. I've never written AU: this one will be fun.

9.00 p.m. 'From Fan to Pro' Room 38: Paul Cornell, Kari Sperring, Charlie Stross. Once upon a time there were two baby writers called Kari and Charlie sitting in a bar and wondering about editors... True story.

Plus, of course, there's the Eastercon bid session, which is at 11.00 a.m. on Sunday in Room 12.

I should be easy to find, given the bid. See some of you there.

Skirt of the day: blue summer flowers.
