You’ve voted? Good. You’re making the world of Australian SFF a better place.
So, other than the Ditmar Awards, loads of other stuff is happening at Continuum X and here’s my schedule:
Signings – Saturday 13:00-13:30 in The Midway (Foyer)
I’m pretty sure there won’t be any copies of Bound available yet, but I’m happy to sign anything else. Really, I’ll sign anything. Surprise me.
Readings – Saturday 14:00-15:00 in Sideshow Alley
with: to be confirmed.
While there won’t be copies of Bound available, I will be reading an excerpt from the book, so if you want a sneak preview, come along to this.
Judging a Book By Its Cover panel – Saturday 15:00-16:00 in The Hall of Mirrors
with: Alan Baxter, Nalini Haynes, Kate Cuthbert, Laura Wilkinson, Dirk Strasser
This should be an interesting panel!
Demystifying Social Media panel – Saturday 18:00-19:00 in The Haunted House
with: Nalini Haynes, Alan Baxter, Jim C. Hines, Satima Flavell, Helen Stubbs
This is always too big a subject for a single panel, but we’ll do our best, I’m sure.
The Aliens Are Too Human! panel – Sunday 10:00-11:00 in The Hall of Mirrors
with: Alan Baxter, Steve Cameron, Darren Sanderson, Bismuth Hoban, Stacey Larner
I’m looking forward to this. No Star Trek galactic DNA seeding bollocks here, please.
At the Crossroads: Music and Genre Fiction panel – Sunday 15:00-16:00 in The Haunted House
with: Julia Svaganovic, Jason Franks, Narrelle Harris, Alan Baxter
How To Make a Podcast panel – Sunday 16:00-17:00 in The Big Top
with Sean Wright, Alan Baxter, Kirstyn McDermott, Terry Frost, Alex Pierce
I’m sure my co-panelists will be far more knowledgable than me on this one, even though I’ve co-hosted over 100 episodes of Authorcast, but there you go!
So that’s me actually fairly busy at the con this year, but that’s cool. Plenty of bar time in between. And I’m sure I’ll be checking out a lot of the other interesting panels and things going on. Come and find me, say hello, let’s have a beer or something.
See you there!
