This year’s Eastercon is almost upon us. Hoorah!
My panels this year are:
Saturday 5pm “Tales From the White Hart”
In homage to Arthur C Clarke’s short stories, panellists will be telling their own scientific tall tales. Although it’s in the programme as two hours long, I suspect it’s only going to last an hour, given that Doctor Who starts at 6:20pm.
Hopefully I’ll get a chance to do mine in the first half. If not, then you can look forward to an impromptu reading in the bar later.
Obviously when I say “look forward to” I mean “fear”.
Monday 12noon “How to Send Your Script to the LMC”
I’ll be speaking about what a certain British Large Media Corporation are looking for when they receive unsolicited scripts, and how you can improve your chances as a writer.
If I said who they were on this blog, I’d have to put a disclaimer at the top saying my opinions weren’t theirs.
I know, it’s a bit complicated, but we don’t want anyone thinking my witterings are official LMC policy now.
Whoever they might be.
Monday 2pm “Icons, Symbolism and Archetypes – Moving Between Faith & Fiction”
Religious imagery in SF. There’s a lot of interesting things here ranging from James Blish through to Battlestar Galactica. Should be a good’un.
There are still tickets available, and if you take the opportunity to book online today or tomorrow rather than buying them at the door, you’ll save yourself a tenner.
It’s going to be great fun – hope to see you there!
