Upcoming Appearances

Arisia 2021

Friday, January 15th–Monday, January 18th

Writing in the Age of COVID (Friday, 7 pm):
Laurence Raphael Brothers (mod),Gillian Daniels, Suzanne Palmer, Ken Schneyer, Julie C. Day
“Speculative fiction writers have imagined all manner of plagues, pandemics, and post-apocalyptic scenarios. Having lived with COVID-19 for the better part of a year, how did speculative fiction writers do? What did they get right and what did they get wrong? This panel will discuss how writers can draw from this collective disaster to make plague fiction more relevant or realistic in the future.”

Pets & Writers (Sunday, 5 pm):
Kathryn Sullivan mod, Jeffrey A Carver, Julie C. Day, Trisha J. Wooldridge, Anne E.G. Nydam
“Animal Companions are a feature in many speculative fiction stories from Ann McCaffery’s dragons to the sentient feline of Charles Stross’s Accelerando anthology. Not to mention all of the author bios that end with some variation of “lives with two cats, one dog, and a menagerie of other beasties.” Writers and audience are encouraged to take advantage of the Zoom medium for the purpose for which it was clearly intended: displaying pets and discussing their influence on writing!”
