World Fantasy 2014 Schedule

This week, I’ll be attending World Fantasy in Arlington, Virginia.

You can find me on the following program item:

The Great Game in History and Fiction
3pm-4pm, Nov. 8, Tidewater 2
Ian Drury (M), David Drake, Jim Fiscus, Jennifer Povey, Victoria Janssen

Before World War I, there was the Great Game, as from 1813 to 1907, the British and Russian empires vied for supremacy. The geopolitical machinations of this period influenced the politics of many fantastic novels, coloring the colonialism of The Blue Sword to post-colonial River of Gods, or Ghosts of the White Nights for their alternate depictions of the later Cold War. The panel will explore the literary impact of the Great Game on fantasy writers of the period as well as today.
