JordanCon Schedule 2015

Once again, I am honored to be a special guest of JordanCon, the fantasy literature convention founded in honor of the late Robert Jordan.

As you’ll see, I have a very full convention schedule. In addition to my typical role as academic-who-appreciates-fantasy, I’ll also be squeezing The Shards of Heaven into every conversation I can. You’ve been warned!

There is an entire world that inspires and informs our writing, and sometimes, people like to write about that too. (with Todd McCaffrey and Anthony Taylor)
