Star-Studded Chicago — Come Visit Me & Other Authors at the Nebula Awards, May 12-15

I will be at the Nebula Awards this weekend in Chicago, from May 12-15.

“The Nebula Awards ® are voted on, and presented by, active members of Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America, Inc… Our conference will also feature the prestigious 50th Annual Nebula Awards hosted by comedian John Hodgman and banquet along with exciting tours of the City Winery and Northern Illinois University. Receptions honoring SFWA’s newest Grand Master, C.J. Cherryh and the Nebula Award nominees will take place throughout the weekend along with a mass autographing session.”

The Nebulas are introducing a new feature this year (which sounds fun!) — Ask an Expert. Here’s the description from the site: “In the Ask an Expert Village, you can sit down for a one-on-one with an expert. Bring your questions. Sign up for these 10 minute sessions at the registration desk.” I really like this idea; I hope it catches on elsewhere, too.

Thursday, 4pm-5pm: Come visit me to discuss short stories: “Brainstorm a problem area, or ask questions about writing short fiction.”

I’m also on three panels:

Friday, 1pm: The Second Life of Stories: handling backlist and reprints. Panelists: Sarah Pinsker, Rachel Swirsky, Colleen Barr, Marco Palmieri, John Joseph Adams, Don Slater

Friday, 4pm: Medicine after the End of the World: managing chronic conditions and serious illness after the apocalypse. Panelists: Annallee Flower Home, Nick Kanas, Daniel Potter, Rachel Swirsky, Michael Damien Thomas, Fran Wilde

Saturday, 4pm: Redefining the Aliens of the Future. Panelists: Juliette Wade, Charles Ganon, Nick Kanas, Fonda Lee, PJ Schnyder, Rachel Swirsky.

I’m also participating in the mass autographing, Friday, 8-9pm.

Also, this site is a cool addition to the Nebula proceedings. You can sign in to peruse speakers, events, and participants, so you can look at events in a traditional program style (by day and time), or else look at what panels an author you’re interested in is doing. Mary Robinette Kowal and the other members of the programming team are doing a really stylish job this year.

Hope to see you there!
