Tomorrow morning I am off to Fantasy Con in York. I've had the pleasure of helping out behind the scenes at this con (mostly wrangling the reading schedule and early brainstorming for panel ideas) and will be on two panels:
Friday 4.00pm – My First Con
Part-panel, part-mingling. If you’re new to the convention scene, come and join us.
Tiffani Angus (m), Ewa Scibor-Rylska, Toby Venables, Glen Mehn
Sunday 11.00am – Building the Same Old World
Only SFF gives us the opportunity to imagine an entirely new world, but how often do we actually do that? Do any writers manage to leave preconceptions about the way the world works behind – and should they? The panellists discuss the opportunities, pitfalls and politics of worldbuilding.
Camille Lofters (m), Tiffani Angus, Foz Meadows, Kate Elliott, Peter Higgins
What I'm Reading Right Now:
Irregularity, ed. Jared Shurin
The Name of the Rose by Umberto Eco (very slowly)
Between Two Thorns (book 1 of The Split Worlds trilogy) by Emma Newman
