I'll be at Wiscon all weekend, but apparently extremely busy on Saturday:

From Airships to Elder Gods (Reading)

Sat 1:00 - 2:15PM       Michelangelos

Maurice Broaddus, Ruthanna Emrys, S Lynn,  & Anne M. Pillsworth

Tor.com authors and friends deconstruct steampunk, Lovecraftian monsters, and other richly deserving genre tropes. Ruthanna Emrys will read from her new novel Winter Tide. Maurice Broaddus will read from the recently released Buffalo Soldier. Anne M. Pillsworth will read from Redemption's Heir, her Neo-Lovecraftian YA series. Samantha Lynn, a Long Hidden contributor, will read from her suburban Chicago dystopia-in-progress.

 

The Alien vs the Monster         

Sat 2:30 - 3:45PM       University C

Ruthanna Emrys (moderator), T.J. Weyler, & William Paimon

 It has been said that all science fiction stories have four types of characters: the alien, those who believe in the alien, those who don't believe in the alien, and those who want to exploit the alien. If one substituted "monster" for "alien," could one say essentially the same thing about horror stories? If one looks at the elements of science fiction and horror, how is the alien similar to the monster? How does it differ? Is there that much of a difference between the genres, especially when the alien and monster may be one and the same?

 

Lovecraftian Girl Cooties Party

Sat 9:00 – 3:00AM      Room 627

This party will celebrate the release of Ruthanna Emrys's Winter Tide, and the ongoing success of Anne M. Pillsworth's Redemption's Heir series. More generally it will celebrate Neolovecraftian writing that uses the trappings of cosmic horror to deconstruct the genre's foundational bigotry. And tentacles. It's always worth celebrating tentacles! Join us for traditional Innsmouth feast food, eldritch chanting, and good times.

 

And I’ll be at the SignOut on Monday morning!
