World Con: MidAmericon 2

Yes, I will be there. You knew that.

Here are the two panels Dr. Catherine Schaff-Stump will be on. Oh, the hubris!

Saturday, August 20, 10 am – 11 am. Finding a Voice in Podcasts and Audiobooks. 2502B Kansas City Convention Center. Both of these media-types are well established, but what really makes ‘voice’ in both podcasts and audiobook narration? The panel discuss ways of representing and discussing the author, their characters and other types of media through sound.

Just stepped up to moderate this one, so I have a little planning left to do.


Sunday, August 21, 11 am – 12pm. Non-Anglophone Writers You Must Know. 2208 Kansas City Convention Center. Most of the world is not English speaking, so as the minority, what should English-language users start to pay attention to so that we can start to read outside of our own communities – even if that will be in translation most of the time?

Come here me talk about (mostly) some excellent Japanese SF/F. Also, come here me talk about how English is the Esperanto of the new century!


I’ll be all over this con from about 2 pm on Thursday until about 3 pm on Sunday, give or take. I’m gonna hit Thursday’s swing dance super hard.I’ve made arrangements to catch up with some folks, but please let me know if you’re there, so I can say hello!
