Bible as Fantasy Literature Panel from Arisia 2016

Thanks to Noah Beit-Aharon, the video of our “Bible as Fantasy Literature Panel” from Arisia 2016 is now available for your viewing pleasure. This was a lot of fun so I’m happy it’s now online.

Here’s the description:

“What can we gain from viewing the Bible as fantasy literature, rife with active gods, prophecies, and larger-than-life heroes, and complete with centuries of fanfic from Dante to Milton and onward? How is the Bible treated in fantasy?”

It was a great discussion, so I’m glad it’s now available for rewatching.


My Arisia Schedule

colorlogoI’ll be at Arisia this weekend. I’ve never been to the con before, so I’m excited! Here’s my schedule:

Reading – Saturday, 10am, Hale, Writing Track, with Matthew Kressel, Shira Lipkin, Lauren M. Roy, Julia Rios

Panel – Sunday, 11:30am, Marina 2, Literature Track, with Ken Schneyer (moderator), B.A. Chepaitis, Matthew Kressel, Susan Weiner, N.S. Dolkart, MJ Cunniff.

Hope to see you there!


Readercon 2015 Schedule

I’ll be attending Readercon from July 9-12, and I’ve just received my panel schedule. Readercon is one of my favorite conventions, and this year I’ll be doing a reading and will be participating in two panels. Otherwise, I’ll likely be near the bar!

Friday, July 11

11:30 AM    EM    Reading: Matthew Kressel.
Matthew Kressel. Matthew Kressel reads from his forthcoming novel, KING OF SHARDS.
 
4:00 PM    F    What Makes Fiction Immersive? 
Stacey Friedberg, Matthew Kressel, Barry Longyear, Sarah Smith (leader), Rachel Steiger-Meister. What is it about a work that makes you fall into it and not want to come out? What makes another time or place so attractive that you find yourself living there in odd moments? Rather than discussing this in terms of writing techniques, we’ll focus specifically on the reader’s experience of a work as immersive, exploring the intersection of escapism and reflection of the reader’s needs and desires.
 

Saturday, July 12

1:00 PM    F    Making SF/F Careers Viable.
Sandra Kasturi, Matthew Kressel, Bart Leib, A. J. Odasso, Alex Shvartsman (leader). Writing, editing anthologies or magazines, running small presses, creating artwork… these pursuits demand a great deal of investment, and returns are unreliable. Few people can spend weeks writing a story on spec, wait months for a contract and longer for a check, or absorb financial losses for years while trying to make a business profitable. Let’s talk frankly about how low pay rates on all fronts affect the demographics of professional SF/F, and what we can do to make SF/F careers more accessible to people with limited tangible and intangible resources.
 

Albacon Schedule

I’ll be headed up to Albany this weekend for Albacon. There will be readings! And panels! And general con cheer! Looking forward to a fun weekend talking books! My schedule follows:

Saturday, 10:00 AM — Reading with Mercurio D. Rivera (not sure who will be reading first, but we both have 30 minutes. I may do voices for Mercurio’s story.)

Saturday, 4:00 PM, Troy, “Social Media” — Kressel, Lafferty*, Laity, Shvartsman (no description online yet, but I believe this panel is about using social media for promotion.)

Saturday, 5:00 PM, Troy, “How Others View Us” — Frederick*, Grant, Kressel, Rivera, Kauderer (they hate us! they despise us! they—who are “they”?)

Sunday, 12:00 PM, Troy, “Novel Craft – great plotting & effective world-building” — Doyle, Kressel, Macdonald*, Stine (looking forward to this one!)

Hope to see all you shiny folks there!
