World Fantasy Schedule for 2012

I will be reading at 1:30 on Friday in the Aurora room. I will probably read a recent space opera piece that I think will do well aloud.

I am moderating this panel and am super excited about it because it’s an excuse to go back and reread a bunch of Leiber:
Saturday, 9 am
Fritz Leiber: The Secret World
From stories such as “Gonna Roll the Bones”, “The Girl with the Hungry Eyes”, and “Smoke Ghost” to novels such as CONJURE WIFE and OUR LADY OF DARKNESS, Leiber chases secrets others keep from us and those we keep from ourselves. Explore some of the more damming, explosive, and world-enlarging secrets from his opus. How are they so powerfully developed? How do they haunt us? How do they inform and shape the fiction of more contemporary writers, and what is Leiber’s place in the development of Urban Fantasy?
The other panelists are Andy Duncan, S.T. Joshi, Violette Malan, and Danel Olson.
