February travel: Oslo and Stockholm

Heads up! I’ll be in Oslo on February 19 and 20, and Stockholm on February 21.

The Oslo stop is at Outland Comic Book Store, February 20, 2016 at 2pm, like it says on the blog sidebar. I’m probably also going to be at the public library talking about AI on the 19th, but I don’t have details about that yet. Then the next day, the 21st of February, I go to Sweden! Or specifically, Science Fiction Bokhandeln in Stockholm at 3pm.

Check out the links for more complete information. I plan to try to bring pins with me, by the way. I’m looking forward to this, it should be great fun!

Sasquan Schedule

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)

The Hugo award ceremony will be livestreamed.


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!
