Yes, I’ll be in Spokane next month! Here’s my schedule:
The Alien Among Us: The Fiction of C.J. Cherryh
Saturday 11:00 – 11:45, Conference Theater 110 (CC)
C.J. Cherryh has long been a master of creating alien societies (and often at showing how we can be the aliens). The panel explores her fiction and her influence on the field.
Chip Hitchcock (M), Jack Campbell , Ann Leckie, Jo Walton
The New Space Opera
Saturday 15:00 – 15:45, 302AB (CC)
We’ve come a long way since the days when “space opera” was a derogatory term. Many of SFs best writers over the last 20 years have written space opera. What’s made the difference?
Rich Horton (M), Jeffrey A. Carver, Ann Leckie, Charles Stross , Doug Farren
Hugo Awards Ceremony
Saturday 20:00 – 22:30, INB Performing Arts Center (CC)
Autographing – Anaea Lay, Ann Leckie, Bud Sparhawk
Sunday 10:00 – 10:45, Exhibit Hall B (CC)
Anaea Lay, Ann Leckie, Bud Sparhawk
Reading – Ann Leckie
Sunday 12:00 – 12:45, Bays 111C (CC)
I don’t know what I will read for this! Maybe the opening of Ancillary Mercy? Maybe the beginning of a recent piece of short fiction? I dunno.
I plan to carry some Awn Elming pins and, yes, some Translator Dlique pins! If you want one, ask me, I’ll be happy to give them to anyone who wants them until I run out. Oh, and I’ll have ribbons, too.
See you there!
