Yes, I will be at Worldcon next week, ’cause hey, possible Hugo. But I’ll be doing other things besides! Like this:
- Fri 13:00 – 15:00, Writers Workshop (with Louise Marley as a co-host!)
- Fri 16:00 – 17:00, Manga: Which Book Series got You Hooked? (Panel): An introduction to manga.
- Fri 17:00 – 18:00, Post-Modern Fantasy, Epic and Otherwise (Panel): There’s been considerable discussion of Fantasy, Fantastika, and Post-Modernism. What is this about, and why is it interesting for those who read, review, or critique present day fantasy?
- Sat 12:00 – 13:00, Autographing
- Sat 15:00 – 16:00, Exploring Social Justice via Science Fiction (Panel): How then does science fiction address social justice? How can writers convey ideas through characters and world-building without being preachy? Can authorial distance provide a single political interpretation? The reader’s role in constructing the politics of the work will not be neglected in the discussion.
And also, the Hugos. If you’ll be there too, look me up!
