More Readercon 2011 Links – and Bittercon!

If you’ve written a convention report, the Readercon LiveJournal community is asking that you post a link in the comments here.

Sherwood Smith proposed an online Bittercon for those unable to attend Readercon. AttackFish has an essay on “Are We Not Men – Human Women and Beast-Men in Paranormal Romance” with some in-depth comments. There’s a long discussion of the same topic in comments over at Sherwood Smith’s LiveJournal. Also from Bittercon, Why We Love Bad Writing.

So far as actual attendance goes, Erin Kissane live-blogged/reported on several panels: The Pseudo-Religiosity of Teleological SF; Borders (If Any) Between Fan Fiction and Original Fiction; and Eucatastrophe.

Delia Sherman’s report.

Transcript of “Still Waiting for My Food Pills” (with pictures!) at the Belm Blog.

Madeleine Robins reports. (Her new Sarah Tolerance book is out this fall!)

About Victoria Janssen

Victoria Janssen [she, her] currently writes cozy space opera for Kalikoi. The novella series A Place of Refuge begins with Finding Refuge: Telepathic warrior Talia Avi, genius engineer Miki Boudreaux, and augmented soldier Faigin Balfour fought the fascist Federated Colonies for ten years, following the charismatic dissenter Jon Churchill. Then Jon disappeared, Talia was thought dead, and Miki and Faigin struggled to take Jon’s place and stay alive. When the FC is unexpectedly upended, Talia is reunited with her friends and they are given sanctuary on the enigmatic planet Refuge. The trio of former guerillas strive to recover from lifetimes of trauma, build new lives on a planet with endless horizons, and forge tender new connections with each other.
