Heading off bright and early tomorrow to exciting Columbus, Ohio for the World Fantasy Convention. I’ll be on the following program items:
Thursday 9:00 pm: The Logic of Absurdity, Fairfield room
Exploring the difference between a completely absurd fantasy and a satire which more or less describes the real world in a way absurdist fantasy doesn’t. Is the difference merely the degree of distortion?
Eric Flint, Gerald Warfield, David Levine (m)
Saturday 1:00 pm: The Fantasy of James Thurber, Morrow room
Ginjer Buchanan (m), Andy Duncan, David Levine, Sharon Reamer, Elaine Isaak
Kate and I are also going to Tron Night, a 20-minute IMAX preview of the new movie, at the AMC Lennox Town Center on Thursday night. Tickets are sold out but each of us can bring one guest.
Apart from those… look for me in the bar!
