Looks like I’ll be busy on Friday. There’s a lot of horror, too. The horrah! The horrah!
Boskone, Feb 13-15:
What do you read for Pleasure?
Patricia Bray, Mary Kay Kare, Juliet E. McKenna, Lawrence M. Schoen, Paul G. Tremblay, Ann Tonsor Zeddies
Cheap romances. Yaoi manga. Archeology journals. Sword and sorcery. Cookbooks. What’s your secret pleasure? Why? Does it affect your writing? (How?)
Why I Write Horror
Christopher Golden, Dan Keohane, Sarah Langan, Paul G. Tremblay
OK….it’s not because you’re crazy (is it?) So, why? How does creating this very darkest of the genres help you (or–one hopes!–your readers) make sense of the “real” world? To create understandable connections with the BAD things around them? And, where–and how–does horror *fail*?
More Braains — Zombies, Part II: The ReResurrection!
John Langan, Paul G. Tremblay
A favorite fun panel from last Boskone comes back from the dead. Again. We ll discuss past, present, and future zombiemania in books, movies, TV, comics, and maybe even real, uh, life. Why not stagger by and let us ea — that is, pick your braaiiins?
A Review of Horror
Craig Shaw Gardner, John Langan, Sarah Langan, Paul G. Tremblay
A look back at material produced in the field over the last year. What was good…..what was *great*! Recommendations??? Where is horror heading?
Writing the First-Person Point of View
Debra Doyle, Darlene Marshall, Joshua B. Palmatier, Paul G. Tremblay, Ann Tonsor Zeddies
What are the plusses and minuses of writing in the first person? Sure, you may gain a sense of immediacy, but what might you lose? How is it done well? Badly?
