Carol and I will be attending Windycon this weekend, in Lombard, Illinois, a Chicago suburb. Here’s the schedule I’ve been assigned:
Friday 5:00 — Crossing the Genres:
There are numerous examples of cross-genre fiction, but how can horror and humor both be combined into a single story and still maintain their impact?
Â M. Black, C. Moore, M. Resnick, D.Sjolander (M)
Saturday Noon — Autographing:
P.Booth, F. Crook, R. Frencl, M. Resnick
Saturday 2:00 — Pulpy Goodness:
Reminisce about those thrilling days of yesteryear when tales by A.
Merritt, Robert, E. Howard, Edgar Rice Burroughs, and so many more filled
the pages of the magazines. But those days aren’t entirely gone. Pulp
adventures are still be published and enjoyed by readers of all stripes.
M. Black, E. Flint, B. Garcia, J. O’Neill, M.Resnick (M)
Saturday 3:00 – Let’s You and Him Talk:
Too much of this past year seems to be spent trying to start battles and wasting time between fans and authors. Come and hear two authors with very different points of view talk about the things that bring them together, and not just bring them together, but allow them to collaborate.
E. Flint, M. Resnick.
Saturday 5:00-5:25 — Reading:
M. Resnick (I’ll be reading the new Harry the Book story)
If you’re attending, do come up and say Hello.
