Friday, 6pm, Shelley Room
PANEL: HUMOR IN SCIENCE FICTION Why did the space chicken cross the orbit? You’ll have to attend this panel to find out why that might – or might not – be funny. With Marie Bilodeau, Ira Nayman, Alex Shvartsman, Sean Grigsby & Brad Preslar
Saturday, 3pm, Shelley Room
PANEL: SF IN TRANSLATION Translated works are becoming much more common, contributing greatly to the globalization of the genre. Why now? and what’s involved in bringing these works to print? With Julie Novakova, Alex Shvartsman, Rachel Cordasco, Petrea Mitchell
Sunday, 11am, Gernsback Room
READING: ALEX SHVARTSMAN & ROSEMARY CLAIRE SMITH
Alex will read from ERIDANI’S CROWN, a political epic fantasy novel.
