Tomorrow at 10 AM, I’ll be participating in this panel discussion at ConFusion:
Anthologies as Advocacy
All fiction is in some way political and science fiction and fantasy have a healthy tradition of anthologies that seek to open up space for new voices and new conversations. To what extent do an anthology’s political goals interact with other editorial considerations? And how are such books received and reviewed by the field — both politically, and aesthetically?
Michael J. DeLuca, Yanni Kuznia, Mari Brighe, Kelley Armstrong (M), Michael Damian Thomas
Doubtless I will mention this:
And maybe this:
And lots of other things, for which I have a bunch of notes. Come on by, it’ll be great.
Then, later, 8 PM that very night, I will be doing this:
Beer Lovers Meet Up
Bring a bottle of your favorite or unusual brew to share with fellow beer lovers in this casual meetup in the consuite.
Joel Zakem, Michael J. DeLuca, Scott H. Andrews, Jim Mann
And boy will there ever be unusual and favorite brew. I just packed the cooler; it contains such magics as Guatemalan chocolate smoked hot pepper stout, orange blossom cyser, two different vintages of spruce beer, two different vintages of mead, a wormwood old ale. And those are just the libations I made myself. Please come help us sample; I doubt we can drink it all ourselves.
