Penguicon, a Michigan convention with events appealing both to SF/Fantasy fans and Linux/Open Source types runs from April 20-22. This year’s noteworthy guests include Charles Stross, Steve Jackson, Nick Sagan, and Bruce Schneier.

Among the somewhat less noteworthy people rounding out the weekend’s many panels you’ll find a Bureau42 author.

I’ll be part of Stross’s Friday evening panel on the cultural influences of H.P. Lovecraft, and on two Sunday panels, including a discussion of problems with Buffy the Vampire Slayer‘s final two (televised) seasons.

Will any other Bureau-crats be heading to Troy next weekend?
