As stated back in this post, I’ve been hoping to share with you my planned attendance of various events at World Fantasy Convention 2013. Since a draft of the programme came out on Tuesday, I raced through it for some vague ideas of what I want to prioritise.
Without further delay, here’s the schedule of things I’m hoping to attend:
I’ve colour-coded my plans:
Purple is a priority to attend
Green is a “probably will / one of these”
Blue is a “if I feel like it”
