A Readercon View from Outside
Art in Paradise: Klingon-Free, an article about this year’s Readercon at the Valley Advocate.
“The scene was small-scale in its charm, nothing but a corner of the Burlington Marriott with ballrooms, most of them host to panels discussing things that sounded more like grad school seminars than SF fan freakouts. They had names like “Animal or Alien: How Body Structure Shapes Mind”; “The Pseudo-Religiosity of Teleological SF”; and “Feeling Very Post-Slipstream.””
