June 7-10, 2019
I'm attending the Continuum Convention in Melbourne, an annual event for the Australian speculative fiction community. This is my first Continuum convention and I'm looking forward to the many expert panels, workshops, Markets, the Maskbalao, Ditmar Awards, Shadows Awards & Norma K Hemming Awards.
Ticket pricing is very generous with special rates for First Time attendees and Friday evening. More information here
I'll be speaking on two panels:
Magical Medicine: The Physiology of Fantasy - Friday 7pm
What options does a twenty-foot dragon have for actually getting airborne? What ailments could trouble a angel? How would you handle a chimera with a cold, and just how *does* a centaur's digestive system work?
June 7, 2019, 7:00 pm to 8:00 pm
Illness in SFF - Saturday 10 am
Future sci fi seems to always have "Medical technology has wiped out disease" or "A plague is wiping out humanity", why do we not hear about common ailments and the oddities of medical care in space and across multiple species?
June 8, 2019, 10:00 am to 11:00 am
There are also some wonderful workshops & talks by the guests of honour. Come join me in the audience!
