Anthrocon is later this week, and I am excited to be attending the con again. I’m also helping out with the writing track again. This year I’m on four panels, three of which focus on helping aspiring writers hone their craft. The fourth panel is the infamous “Readings in Terrible Fiction” panel that with its audience participation component. This one happens late at night and has started to gain a Rocky Horror like theme to, so if you need something to do late Saturday night at the con, swing on by. My panels for AC this year are:
- Friday, 10pm – Writing After Dark: Adult Content
- Saturday 11:30am – Historical Fiction
- Saturday, 11:59 am – Readings in Terrible Fiction aka ‘Can You Read It?’
- Sunday 10:00am – Fantasy
I’m also happy to announce that Fang 8 will be debuting at the con, and this volume has two of my stories in it. The theme for this issue is paradise, and I have two very different visions of that in that. My first story in the book deals with metal bands and early adulthood while the second piece is set in a dystopian worker’s paradise. If you are looking for some great adult stories focused on gay relationships, check the book out.
While not on panels or talking to writers, I’ll be down at the Rysingson Accessories‘ booth in the dealer’s den helping the boyfriend out. Also, my dystopian anthology co-editor Slip Wolf will be at the con, and we’ll be making final story selections in person. Acceptance and rejection letters will go out Anthrocon. See you in Pittsburgh!
