My Readercon 2018 Schedule

July 12, 2018

I’ll be attending Readercon for the next three days and participating on their program. Here’s where to find me:

Friday, 6:00 PM - Blue Hills - Scouting Global Speculative Stories - Anatoly Belilovsky, Neil Clarke, Liz Gorinsky, Mimi Mondal, Alex Shvartsman, 
Francesco Verso - Magazine and book editors will discuss how they scout and promote authors from outside the U.S. and U.K., sharing their expertise 
and best practices. How can writers and editors make the best use of resources such as Lavie Tidhar's WorldSF Blog and Rachel Cordasco's SF in Translation 
site? What would make it easier to find, publish, and publicize world speculative fiction? 

Saturday, 3:00 PM - Blue Hills - The Possibilities and Perils of Comedy - Martin Cahill, James Morrow, Eric Schaller, Alex Shvartsman, Chandler Klang Smith, 
Torger Vedeler - Even the saddest and scariest fiction can contain elements of comedy or humor. It must be handled well, no matter the seriousness or 
frivolity of the work, or it can destroy the story. What does humor bring to the reader's experience of a work? How can a dash of humor add to or detract 
from otherwise non-comedic works? Comedy is hard; is it worth the effort? 

Sunday, 1:00 PM - Salon B - Reading
