Semi-Final Program Grid for Dave Klecha
This is the Semi-Final program schedule. Dave Klecha may or may not actually be on these items, but probably will. However, due to circumstances beyond our control, modifications to the program can occur throughout the convention.

Once, even lowly hobbits could defeat a darklord in just three books. Now series seem to go on and on and on. Why? Whose fault is it Ė publishers, authors, or readers? What if the author wants to write something else? Can we shorten the series?
