I'm presenting at this year's Marscon on Saturday:
Saturday, March 7:
1:00-1:45 p.m. Good Things in Small Packages
Small and medium press publishing for sf/f/h writers and readers: what's out there? What are the differences between presses that do POD (print on demand), ebooks, and small print runs? What's in it for writers? For readers?
Catherine Lundoff, mod.; Roy C. Booth, Rob Callahan, Lyda Morehouse, Bryan Thao Worra
3:00-3:45 p.m. Reading Outside the SF/F Mainstream
Small press, feminist, Carl Brandon Society winners, LGBT spec fic, and the list goes on. What's worth checking out? Are awards a good criterion? Bring your recommendations!
Catherine Lundoff, mod.; Rob Callahan, Bryan Thao Worra
7:00-7:45 p.m. Lovecraftian Invasions!
War and the Weird in the Work of H.P. Lovecraft
Bryan Thao Worra, presenter
8:00 p.m.-2:00 a.m., Krushenko's. Diversicon Party
Sponsored by this multicultural, multimedia speculative fiction convention, the 17th edition of which will be held July 31-August 2, in the Best Western--Bandana Square, with Guest of Honor Kay Kenyon and Special Guests Michael Levy and Sandra Lindow.
Krushenko's (Concierge Lounge, Room 1332) and its sometime partner, Krushenko's Annex (Room 1331), are spaces that encourage conversation about science fiction and fantasy at SF conventions. Krushenko's, named after a Manhattan bistro in Larry Niven's novel Ringworld, started at the 1983 Minicon, and now also travels to CONvergence, Diversicon, and Arcana in the Twin Cities and WisCon in Madison.
