Here's where to find me:

Friday, April 15 - 1:30-2:30pm Fantasy: The Kickass Fantasy Heroine

Traditional fantasy readers and writers sometimes criticize the female hero – especially the warrior women – as being a male hero with tits. Is this a fair criticism? What does a female character bring to the warrior role that is quintessentially feminine? (In the Conga room.) With Darynda Jones, Kate Elliott, Tamora Pierce, and CL Wilson.

Friday, April 15 - 7-9pm RT Awards Ceremony! 

Friday, April 15 - 9-9:30pm Award Winners Gala

ConFusion 2016

Here's my schedule!

Friday 6:00:00 PM SFF Debates 2016!

Six of your favorite SFF personalities debate the issues of our time in this live debate, moderated by Robert Jackson Bennett.

Diana Rowland, John Scalzi, Wesley Chu, Delilah S. Dawson, Robert Jackson Bennett (M), Mark Oshiro, Brent Weeks

Saturday 9:00:00 AM Author RPG: Planet Mercenary!

Authors from across the genre spectrum come together to put Howard Tayler's new game, Planet Mercenary, to the test. Come watch these exceptional creatives put on a show and enjoy some laughs. Please remember to give the players their space.

Howard Tayler (M), Brian McClellan (M), Delilah S. Dawson, Cherie Priest, Mur Lafferty, Robert Jackson Bennett, Saladin Ahmed, Brent Weeks

Saturday 3:00:00 PM Gettin' Punny With It

Piers Anthony and Adam Roberts can't help themselves. And neither can these panelists. Come watch these punsters compete against one another for the title of ConFusion Punmaster, while discussing whether or not the pun can be used without irony.

Patrick Tomlinson (M), Cherie Priest, Delilah S. Dawson, Dave Robison, Sunil Patel

Saturday 4:00:00 PM Autograph Session 1

I'll have bookmarks, cards, temporary tattoos, and bookplates. Come see me!

Saturday 5:00:00 PM Vigilante Justice in Urban Fantasy

The Urban Fantasy genre is built, in many ways, around glorifying extra-judicial violence. In this way, they might have more in common with the Western than the modern crime novel. Given the huge challenges in the United States with gun violence and criminal justice, should we be more concerned about the narrative shape of these novels?

Diana Rowland, Michael R. Underwood (M), Delilah S. Dawson, Jeannie Szarama, Melissa F. Olson

Saturday 7:00:00 PM The Aftermath of Canon

Star Wars recently relegated all of its Expanded Universe fiction to non-canon, which was tantamount to betrayal for many fans. Aftermath, a novel in the new canon, was met with many reviews that could not come to grips with a Star Wars that included gay characters. How well did Disney handle their canon situation? And is there a place for fiction that services its readers' bias?

Delilah S. Dawson, Andrea Phillips, Eric Distad, Jeannie Szarama, Michael Lee

Sunday 12:00:00 PM What Comes After Grimdark?
In 2015 many novels were released to great critical acclaim that seemed to eschew the bleaker tones of modern genre fiction. Noami Novik's UPROOTED and Becky Chambers A LONG WAY TO A SMALL ANGRY PLANET are two examples. What might be motivating a shift away from grim tales and will the trend continue?
Delilah S. Dawson, Sam Sykes, Scott H. Andrews (M), Aimee Carter, Saladin Ahme
