Eastercon stuff

I seem to be doing quite a lot at Eastercon this year, including a panel with Jim Butcher, Ashley Pollard, and others. Fortunately it's the "game of the book" panel so I shouldn't quite come across as an idiot, but even so...

My past experiences with being on panels with big name authors include finding out (as a panel with Philip Pullman started) that nobody actually involved in running the con was present, and that none of us knew who was supposed to be moderating it. I ended up moderating it myself. And on a panel with Roger Zelazny I recall going into a rant about the lack of imagination shown by authors who always put Jack the Ripper into stories with a Victorian setting, then learning that his latest novel's viewpoint character was JtR's dog.
