The Wheel of Time, Tor Books, and Brandon Sanderson will figure heavily into this year’s Dragon*Con, with readings, panels, RAFOs, and activities galore. (There are also, less officially, some Magic: The Gathering battles to be waged.) We’ve gathered the schedules together into one post for your catch-all convenience.
