When you absolutely, positively have to find me at Sasquan (WorldCon), here’s how you do it.
In addition to putting in my hours as part of the Writing Workshop, I will be doing the following Fabulous Items:
(Ann Chamberlin, Laura Anne Gilman, Kay Kenyon, Mike Resnick, Shanna Swendson, Fran Wilde)
Thursday 15:00 – 15:45, Exhibit Hall B (CC)
(for those of you who also like mysteries, I will happily sign L.A. Kornetsky’s work, as well).
Horror/Paranormal: What’s New
Thursday 17:00 – 17:45, Spokane Falls Suite A/B (Doubletree)
Found anything scary…or scary and somehow, well, romantic? A look at current paranormal writing, trends for the future and is the current spate of horror & paranormal on TV helping or hurting the genre?
Joshua Bilmes, Nick Mamatas, Christie Meierz, Laura Anne Gilman
Building a Better Tomorrow
Friday 15:00 – 15:45, 302AB (CC)
Young adult science fiction is thriving, presenting an array of possible futures for humanity. While YA SF seems to be taking off, many of those stories feature dark futures. Why might teens be drawn to these types of settings that feature dystopic settings? Will there be a brighter or better tomorrow for us?
Laura Anne Gilman (M) , Paolo Bacigalupi , Troy Bucher, Dan Wells
