1-3 pm Stephen Woodworth and wife Kelly Dunn. He is best known for his books Through Violet Eyes and With Red Hands, she is the editor of Mutation Nation. Through Violet Eyes “In a world where the dead can testify against the living, someone is getting away with murder. Because to every generation are born a select few souls with violet-colored eyes, and the ability to channel the dead. Both rare and precious—and rigidly controlled by a society that craves their services—these Violets perform a number of different duties.” Mutation Nation “The scariest monsters may not be the supernatural creatures we’ve been taught to fear. We can run from the marauding zombie, refuse to invite a hungry vampire, or turn on the light to banish the ghost in the dark.”

3-5 pm Larry Niven .  He best known as the creator and writer for the Ring World series, but will also be featuring many of his other books.  Larry Niven is the multiple Hugo and Nebula Award-winning author of the Ringworld series, along with many other science fiction masterpieces. He lives in Chatsworth, California. Ringworld “A new place is being built, a world of huge dimensions, encompassing millions of miles, stronger than any planet before it. There is gravity, and with high walls and its proximity to the sun, a livable new planet that is three million times the area of the Earth can be formed. We can start again!”
