Liars Panel Charity Event Successful

The “Liar’s Panel” with Mark L. Van Name, Ellen Klages, Sharyn November, and Jon Courtney Grimwood was a resounding success at the 2009 World Fantasy Convention. Held Saturday night in the Club Regent theatre, the panel entertained an audience kept in stitches by their straight-faced and bold lies… and boldfaced and straight truth! Questions such as “What was the weirdest date you ever went on?” and “What is the strangest thing you own” brought the comedic talents of the panelists to the fore, and tested the audience waving dollar bills to challenge their lies. The event, in one hour, raised over $350 for Variety Children’s Charity of Northern California. We extend a big thank you to the panelists and audience from Rina Weisman and Variety!

The convention is now in full swing, as you should be able to tell from our Twitter Tracker. There will be many different panels today, but one of the most popular is likely to be Peter Straub’s launch event for his new, two-volume anthology from the Library of America: American Fantastic Tales. The panel also includes Brian Evenson, S.T. Joshi, Tim Powers and Gary K. Wolfe.

A review of the anthology went up on BlogCritics today.

We have been asked if we can post a list of writers who have had to cancel. Obviously we don’t necessarily know if people decide not to come. However, there are two things you can check. The first is to look at the list of blog entries about program for anyone dropping off a program item. The other is the LiveJournal Community where people are selling memberships.

And the cancellation you are most likely to want to know about is Holly Black.

Yesterday we gave you the program schedule listings. But static listings are not always what you need, so today we have added a program schedule blog that allows you to select by room, by event type and so on. The smart phone interface also allows you to select by participant.

For boring technical reasons that you won’t want us to go into, this is on a separate blog on this site. You can find it here.

Tomorrow (hopefully), printable grids.
