So, some cool things happening for my birthday weekend.
Saturday August 15, starting at 7pm (EDT): The 2020 Prix Aurora Awards
My BFF and co-editor Talia C. Johnson and I will be virtually attending this award ceremony as first-time nominees. Our anthology, Nothing Without Us is up for Best Related Work. You can watch the awards live on YouTube at:
Sunday August 16, 4pm (EDT), Injecting Humour into Speculative Fiction
Ira Nayman from Amazing Stories magazine will moderate this panel, featuring guest authors Jen Frankel, Timothy Carter, Hugh Spencer, Zachry Wheeler, and lil’ ol’ me.
From WWC's panel description: You got your humour in my science fiction! No, you got your science fiction in my humour! For this panel, people who write humorous speculative fiction will explain how the magic is performed. The good news: understanding how humour works will not spoil your enjoyment of it. The better news: you don’t have to understand the ancient cultural reference at the beginning of this description to enjoy, and even learn something, at this panel!
Watch it live at:
Should be a fun time! Hope you can join us!
