I’ll be at AnachroCon this weekend beginning Friday afternoon (see the Events link for full details). Come by and join us. Excellent costumes, amazing bands, lots of fun.
Here’s my panels:
9:00am – 9:45am Alternate History vs. Revisionist History. In this panel, we’ll be talking about the fine line between creating alternate history versus actually revising the public perception of history. We’ll discuss the nature of history as a (sometimes fictional) story rather than a set of facts, and look at how various pieces of alternate history interact with history.
10:00am – 10:45am Gender and Race in Alternate History. In this one, the title is pretty straightforward. We’ll be discussing issues of race and gender in alternate history fiction, costuming, etc.
10:00 pm – 11:45pm Jana Oliver Book Launch Party. There will be CAKE and very cool prizes.
Right after my book launch is the Men WITHOUT Pants Party. Be it a toga, kilt or skirt, this is the party for those guys who want to throw off their trousers and be seen. I’m definitely hanging around for that one
