This weekend I’ll be attending Vericon — Harvard University’s annual science fiction convention. This is a small affair with only a dozen or so guests and a handful of panels, but their other guests are top notch: this year’s roster includes Patrick and Teresa Nielsen-Hayden, Mary Robinette Kowal, Jo Walton, Will McIntosh and a plethora of other fine authors and editors. Ken Liu is the guest of honor (and also happens to be an alum).
I’m very excited to re-visit Boston, to visit Harvard for the first time, and to get to speak, participate on panels, and even do a reading there. I will stick around all weekend long, but these are the panels/functions I’m currently scheduled for, so come by and hear me (and people much smarter than me) speak, should you be so inclined:
7pm – Editing and Translating Genre Fiction (KL, AL, AS, PNH) – Sever Hall 113
