I’m headed to Readercon next weekend and just got my schedule.

Mary Robinette Kowal reads “Body Language.”
Friday 4:00 PM. Talk / Discussion ( 60 min.)
Remember to Breathe: The Secrets Behind Great Public Readings.
You may be a good writer, but reading aloud is a separate skill. Learn to make your words sound as great out loud as they do on the page. Using both demonstration and audience participation, we will explore voicing, narration and pacing.
Friday 6:00 PM. Panel
Hunted Jaguars: Fiction In Another Land.
* Leader (Participant / Moderator) *
Paul Di Filippo, Mary Robinette Kowal (L), Shariann Lewitt, Paul Park, Lucius Shepard
Much memorable speculative fiction has been set either in the developing world or in an obviously fantasticated version of it. These stories are attractive to writers and readers for a number of different reasons. Our panelists talk about the genesis of these stories and their motivations for using such a setting.
