The annual World Science Fiction Convention (Worldcon) is practically next door to me this year! If you're planning to be there, track me down and say hi. I'll be participating in several panels as well as doing a group reading with other people from the Escape Artists podcasts. And do please drop by when I'm sitting all lonely at the signing table next to the popular authors!
Categories and identity labels for gender have expanded dramatically in recent years. This panel will discuss gender identity vs. gender presentation, and untangle the range of identities across the gender spectrum: trans, genderqueer, genderfluid, agender, bigender, butch, femme, and others.
(Note: I originally posted this with an oudated, longer list of participants. I assume there were scheduling asjustments for the participants who are no longer listed. And I certainly hope additional participants will be added for the actual panel!)
I'll be signing next to some fairly recognizable names and some less well known (yet). Even if you don't have a book for me to sign (though they'll be available in the dealers room), come on by to say hello. As usual, I'll have some chapbooks to give away for those who don't already have them.
EscapePod is one of the finalists for the Hugo for semi-prozine. They join forces with their sibling magazines to present short fiction. Come hear some of the voices of Escape Artists read.
Some of the great SF and Fantasy stories have their origins in myth, legend, and folklore. How have these tales grown from Yddgrasil's roots and transformed into what we could call the mythology of today?
