So far this year, I’ve attended Boskone, the International Conference on the Fantastic in the Arts, and the Arkansas Literary Festival. I’m planning to be at a number of conventions later in the year, but details are still to be determined because I’ll be spending part of the summer in London, researching my novel. I’ll let you know where I’ll be appearing next!
While I was at the Arkansas Literary Festival in April, I was interviewed by Today’s THV, a morning show in Little Rock. It was my first time on television! Here is the clip: Reading Up a Storm at Arkansas Literary Festival.
While I was at the International Conference on the Fantastic in the Arts, I participated in a panel discussing the monstrous. That discussion has been turned into a podcast on the Locus website: ICFA Podcast: The Monstrous. Here is a description of the panel:
“Today we’re bringing you one of the evening panels held at ICFA this past March. The panel, held late on Thursday evening, featured (in the order you will hear them): Moderator F. Brett Cox, China Miéville, James Morrow, Suzy McKee Charnas, Peter Straub, Theodora Goss, and Kelly Link. They particularly discuss the question of the appropriateness of applying the label ‘monster’ to a real person, from both a cultural and historical perspective.”
The podcast I did for Locus Magazine at last year’s ICFA with Paul Park, Eileen Gunn, and Cecilia Holland, moderated by Karen Burnham, is now available online.
The Mythpunk panel I participated in at last year’s Boskone was videotyped and is available on YouTube. Here I am with Greg Feeley, Michael Swanwick, Greer Gilman, and Deborah Doyle.
