So EightConSquared, a.k.a. Eastercon 2013, is on the horizon, and I finally know what I'm doing at it, so for those who are coming (or thinking of it) the programme can be found by following the links here. For me, my contribution can be measured thusly:
Friday 29th at 7-8pm is the fantasy Genre Get-Together which is your best opportunity to get books signed, meet fantasy authors etc. The author list is here and I'd assume most of them will pitch up when their genre gets poked.
On Saturday 30th at 11-12am I'm on the panel "The Stories in Games" discussing what it says on the tin with Mike Cule, Ian McKenna, Emma Newman and Marcus Rowland.
Same day at 8-9pm I'm on a rather technical panel "Law and New Technology". I'm not an IP specialist, alas, but hopefully I'll have something to contribute on the legal side. I'm sharing this one with Jennifer Delaney, Simon Bradshaw, Caroline Gomez-Lagerlof and Sarah Groenewegen.
Finally, on Sunday at 5–6 my personal favourite "Revolutionary Fantasy", discussing politics and fantasy fiction, a personal axe of mine (as per recent post on the Tor UK blog). This one is with Juliet McKenna, Kate Keen, Francis Knight and Gaie Sebold.
In other news, I am interviewed by Ethel, the genius loci of Aethernet Magazine, here.
Hope to see you there.
