ICFA Appearance

This coming week is the International Conference on the Fantastic in the Arts, down in Orlando, Florida this coming week, and I'll be sitting on a panel for the first time! I've sat in the audience for a bunch of these things at ReaderCon or Boskone, so sitting on the other side of the equation will be different.

Here's where you can find me:

  • Thursday, March 20, 2:30-4:00 pm, Captiva B. Hybrid Publishing: How to Survive and Prosper in a Brave New Publishing World

This panel is going to be talking about publishing and how the model has been shifting with new outlets and platforms available to authors and editors. Jennifer Stevenson will be moderating David Hartwell, Ellen Datlow, Julia Rios and myself. I suspect I'll only really be able to talk about Kickstarter and the work I've done with War Stories, but I suspect I'll be able to talk a little about Lightspeed as well.

It should be a fun time. There'll be a couple of other War Stories folks in attendance: Brett Cox, Joe Haldeman and Richard Larson. I know Brett's going to be reading from his story from War Stories, "Where We Would End A War" in Vista A on Thursday from 8:30-10:00 am or in Vista A, on Friday from 8:30-10:00 am). Joe will have a reading in Vista A on Saturday from 4:00-5:30 pm. Rich Larson will be reading on Thursday at 2:30-4:00 pm in Vista A and at Words and Worlds in Dogwood on Thursday, 4:15-5:45 pm. I don't know what they'll be reading, however.

If you're there, come by, say hello!
