Heading to the World Fantasy Convention on Thursday and looking forward to seeing everyone there. You can catch me on these two panels:
Contemporary Art and Fantasy Book Covers
Sat 3:30 PM-4:30 PM Ballroom A
Anders, Gianni, Givens(m), Palencar, Vess
Does a successful 21st century fantasy cover necessarily have to be representational? What influences the degree of representation in a fantasy cover?
Will Somebody Please Explain This Book?
Sun 3:30 PM-4:30 PM Ballroom A
Anders, Bey, Dedman, Groell, November(m)
We've all read at least one: the book that leaves us going "What the h***?" Our good-humored panelists discuss books they found obscure, convoluted, or just incomprehensible. What do such books contribute to the fantasy tradition, and what do they mean?
