Hi all! One of the best things about being a writer in Baltimore is that the city’s book festival every fall. SFWA runs an entire mini-convention throughout the festival, and I’ll be there this weekend (as well as splitting my time with the Baltimore Comic-Con, checking in with my comics friends).
Here’s where you can find me at the book festival:
Friday, September 25th
11am – The Revolution Will Be Science Fictional and Fantastic
What to read in SF/F and where to find it! Our panel looks at the latest trends in SF/F and the books people are talking about this year.
Emmie Mears, Cat Rambo, Fran Wilde, Michael R. Underwood
12pm – Comics! Science Fiction! Fantasy!
POW! BAM! See how comics, science fiction, and fantasy inform each other. Are superhero stories fantasy, science fiction, or both? Which non-superhero SF/F comics should you be reading? What’s up with novels about superheroes? From Saga to Ms. Marvel to Kavalier & Clay, our panel will discuss it all.
Bill Campbell, Anne Gray, Cat Rambo, Michael R. Underwood
1pm – Reading Group 1 – Superheroes, SF, and Action!
Sit down and discover your new favorite author! Four writers, one hour.
DH Aire, Tom Doyle, Cat Rambo, Michael R. Underwood
