NeCon Schedule

This weekend, I’ll be attending my very first NeCon.  If you happen to be there, here’s what the powers-that-be have me signed up to do:

 

Friday, July 21st

2:00 p.m.  Who Are You Calling Weird?: Weird Fiction in the New Century
Laird Barron, John Langan, Sandra Kasturi, Jack Haringa (M), Bob Boyczuk, Douglas Wynne
The more things change, the more they stay weird! Weird fiction dates back to the late 19th century, and the real world is a far different place now than when the subgenre began. So, just what’s “weird” in 2017?

 

Saturday, July 22nd

4:30 p.m.  Greater Than the Sum: Collections, Linked and Otherwise
Elizabeth Massie (M), John Langan, Ed Kurtz, John Urbancik, Matt Bechtel, Laird Barron
The art of writing short fiction is obviously far different than that of writing a novel. That said, putting together a collection is also far different than writing any one tale. And what about when the stories are linked by a common setting or overlapping characters? Our panelists discuss the Jenga-like process of constructing a single-author collection.

 

I’m very much looking forward to this; if you’re there, please say hello.
