All right! ArmadilloCon is in the rearview mirror. Dublin is coming up! Here is my schedule PLUS I am signing at the Angry Robot booth at 11:30 am on Friday April 16.

Here is my Dublin WorldCon schedule. I’m so excited!
Horse sense
Format: Panel
15 Aug 2019, Thursday 21:00 – 21:50, Liffey Hall-2 (CCD)
How can fantasy authors write believable horse characters? The panel will discuss many aspects of horse knowledge such as: how fast cavalry can charge or travel in a day, how much and how often horses eat, how they are trained, and what makes a good rider. They will also consider who writes horses well, what do horses add to a story, and is it always necessary to get it ‘right’ if the story is good?
Patrice Sarath, Mike Scott, Linda Antonsson, Sarah Pinsker (SFWA) (M)
Dystopia in current times
Format: Panel
17 Aug 2019, Saturday 21:00 – 21:50, Liffey Hall-2 (CCD)
Where do we draw the line between a dystopia and living in a real, tyrannical state? What are the less obvious means that a state can use to control its citizens? Dystopias are frequently positioned as futuristic; under the threat of climate change and oppressive governments, how do we reconcile our world today with the dystopian fiction we consume? What can we take from these stories and apply to our own worlds?
Patrice Sarath (M), Pablo Defendini (Fireside), Rebecca Roanhorse, Veronica Roth
Reading: Patrice Sarath
Format: Reading
18 Aug 2019, Sunday 20:30 – 20:50, Liffey Room-3
