Alis likes to try and get out to a few cons a year. Here’s where you can find her current schedule.
Friday, 29 September @ 10am: Magic systems in SF fiction.
The ingenious, the diabolical and the frankly hilarious.
Monday, 2 October @ 10:00am: Reinventing the myth.
Recycling the same stories? Or upcycling them? Using myths in storytelling to make new tales
Saturday, 30 September @ 10am: Remembering Terry Pratchett.
“No one is actually dead until the ripples they cause in the world die away.” – TP
Ripple on, big guy.
Monday, 2 October @ 1:30pm: Wonderful, wide, weird, cruel & cool (worldbuilding).
How important is setting and secondary world building? We talk worlds we love and worlds that leave us cold and what it takes to make a good one.
