World Fantasy Schedule

Jim’s post about Icon is here. Highlights include pictures of shrubbery.

As you all know, I’m off to World Fantasy on Thursday. It should be a good time. I’ll get to see my good friend Julie Rose, and hang out with some of my new Viable Paradise peeps. I know several folks who are reading and going. I’m pretty sure it’ll be a good time.

As to “official” scheduling, I will be on a panel Saturday at 10:00 am. The panel is called The Academic Treatment of Fantasy and Horror.

The description?

How has it changed things in the past ten years? Has the effect been positive for readers? What about writers? And what have been the reasons for the change?
Chett Breed (moderator), David Bratman, Catherine Schaff-Stump, Darrell Schweitzer, Jacob Weisman

I seem to be the only woman on the panel. That is interesting. I shall have to make an effort to represent!

At any rate, that’s the place to locate me for sure.

If you want to be SURE to meet up with me, and you aren’t coming to the VP party, or the panel, I’m not opposed to schedules. Otherwise, we’ll have to trust to serendipity. Just let me know your level of mistrust.

Off for an afternoon of shopping and writing. After an hour of grammar. Because here in Iowa, we have one hard rockin’ life!

One thought on “World Fantasy Schedule”

  1. “The Academic Treatment of Fantasy and Horror”? That should be a quick discussion 🙂

    The professor I did my final individual study with concentrated his research on Stephen King. As I remember we had one meeting where he decried the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune (this was some twenty years ago in the late 80s). On the plus side, it was when I started taking Mr. King seriously.
