This week I’m at the 75th Worldcon in Helsinki. Woooooo!!!
Here’s my official convention schedule:
- Romance and the Power of the Female Gaze: Thursday 15:00 – 16:00, 208 (Messukeskus): Romance novels out-sell science fiction and fantasy novels all over the world. How important is the “female gaze” in SF novels and do the best sellers in SF reflect this?
(I’m looking forward to this, because this is one of those topics where I expect to learn tremendously from my fellow panelists.)
- DC on Screen Now: Friday 12:00 – 13:00, 102 (Messukeskus): There is a huge divide in the way the DC movies and TV shows work – DC’s superheros tend to work better on a smaller screen. The panelists talk about these, compare, contrast and critique.
(Yes, this panel has ME written all over it. Do I have opinions? Oh yes I do. I’ll be your guy in a chair.)
- Signing: Carrie Vaughn: Saturday 11:00 – 12:00, Signing area (Messukeskus)
(What it says on the tin. Really looking forward to the chance to chat with people.)
It’s a light schedule, which I’m actually looking forward to because it means more time enjoying the convention. And the Hugo Awards are Friday night! If you see me around, unless it looks like I’m rushing off, I’m usually happy to stop and chat and sign books on the fly.
