Obligatory World Fantasy Post!

Obligatory, but don't think I'm not excited about WFC!

My panel, let me show you it:

Saturday, 5PM
Panel A16: The Evolving Image of the Dragon.
Merrie Haskell, John Pitts, J. Kathleen Cheney, James Maxey (m), Darrell Sweet

I may not be properly prepared for this panel, since I signed up for it on the basis of all my dragonly research for my WIP. I know quite a bit about Anglo-Saxon dragons from college, and I'm learning lots more about medieval dragons, but I bet they mean throughout fantasy literature in the last century. Alas. I guess I can start us off, as if the starting point won't be Smaug anyway, who is pretty much the epitome of the Anglo-Saxon dragon--mostly. (Should I re-read The Hobbit or wing it?)

Things I am most especially looking forward to: seeing my friends who live just a little too far to see very often; getting sarah_prineas's signature on her trilogy, w00t!!; meeting Beth Bernobich!; meeting my roomie, Elaine Isaak. And that sweet, sweet passel of books I've only heard of in legend and song.

I am leaving Ann Arbor in my car at noon on Thursday, and coming back after the awards banquet on Sunday. Anyone local who wants to carpool, let me know!

Have fun on your panel! My only exposure to dragons in fiction was the creature as presented in GAME OF THRONES. I found the dragon eggs more interesting than the dragons. :) I have wondered if dragon legends arose after someone found a pterodactyl skeleton (or similar).

Looking forward to it! I'll try to make it to the dragon panel because I have rather an interest... But I'm doing a local signing until 4:00, so who knows how long it'll take me to get back to the con hotel.
