The professionals are: Kevin Murphy, Wanda Kurtcu, Gerald Nordley, and Dierdre Saoirse Moen.
I'm bringing "The Reality of Space" (formerly called "Real Space"). I just re-read the manuscript and, while there's some klunky parts (and some hideous grammar/spelling errors that I missed), I think it holds together fairly well and has some nifty bits. I'll be interested to see how the session goes.
Here's the funny thing: Out of my nine con critique sessions (2 Potlatch, 3 Norwescon, 3 Orycon and now Baycon), Gerald Nordley has been in three of those panels. We just seem to get matched up. That's fine with me, he's very nice and gives good feedback. I'm very thrilled to have him critiquing "The Reality of Space" because he knows space travel so well.
I met Dierdre at the Orycon Open Reading and Critique sessions, so it will be good to have her feedback again.
Should be fun! The session is the morning of Sunday, May 25 from 9 AM to noon. Ugh. Early Sunday morning. I hope everyone is awake after Saturday night parties.
