Conflux 2012

Conflux, the Canberra Science Fiction Convention, is on this weekend. I will be there with bells on, and, perhaps, my pineapple dress. The weather is gorgeous here at the moment, so if you’re trying to decide whether or not to come, do!


My panels and readings are:


Saturday, 10 am

Evil Overlord panel with Jack Dann as Evil Overlord –
Pat Gallagher, Kaaron Warren, Rob Porteous, Lewis Morley and David Versace.

We’ll be discussing suitable doomsday devices and how to employ them.


Saturday, 5pm

Literary Beer. Join me and Rob Hood for all things horror, and all things alcoholic. Or caffeinated. Your choice of beverage, but there will be horror.


Sunday, 10am

Kimberley Gaal and I will read. Kim is going to read part of her brilliant new  novel, and I’ll be reading my bizarre piece, “The Human Moth”, soon to appear in Joe Pulver’s Thomas Ligotti tribute anthology.

Sunday, 11am

Imagery: How do you use the things you see in your horror fiction ? Talie Helene, Kaaron Warren, Shauna O’Meara


Sunday, 4.15

Janeen Webb and I will run a Point of View workshop


I’ll also be on the CSFG table at various times, selling all the good books including my Through Splintered Walls. Everyone who buys a copy will receive one of my new bookmarks. These ones are inspired by an old cookbook, so worth collecting!


The full program is up at the Conflux Blog.
