Here’s my panel schedule for Dragon*Con, which takes place in downtown Atlanta from Aug. 30th – Sept. 3rd. Also known as Nerd Prom and Nerdapalooza, Dragon*Con is an enormous show (approximately 70,000 attendees) and boasts thirty-some odd individual programming tracks. I had a great time there last year, and interviewing Martin Landau on stage about Space: 1999 was definitely the highlight for me. Take a look at what I’ll be doing there this year…
