The Discworld Beastiary

In a nice moment of serendipity, Esther Friesner * and I both came up with this idea for a panel at NADWCon.  She has agreed to be on the panel.  This is one our animal lovers won't want to miss. 

Discworld Beastiary

A discussion - both serious and un - of hares, ravens, rats, orangutans, dragons and other animals, both mythic and real, on the Discworld and in the world of folklore.**

See you there, 


* A funny, witty woman and one of our author Guests of Honor, Ms. Friesner is highly skilled in the fine art of Cheeblemancy.

** Including but not limited to: cats, dogs, dragons, elephants, hares, horses, kangaroos, magpies, orangutans, pumas, rats, ravens, sheep, and, of course, a giant turtle and a small tortoise of particular note.
