I found out a couple of days ago that I'm going to be on the "What the Dickens?" panel at the World Fantasy Convention in Toronto that's taking place in a couple of weeks. I'm really pleased; I've always been a Dickens fan, and although I'm no scholar, I'm at least familiar with most of his writing. Now I've got to go reread Dickens' ghost stories, including the ones sprinkled throughout Pickwick Papers.
The panel will be taking place on Friday, November 2nd, at 4 p.m. I'm looking forward to it, and if you're going to be at World Fantasy, I hope to see you there!
