I have been notified that the following week on July 15th at Anime Mini I will be presenting two panels “The Tale of Genji New Reader Introduction” and “Godzilla, Kaiju Eiga and the Amazing Toho Studios.” Exact speaking times are still to be determined. Details on the event, which will be held in Greensburg, can be found here:
The tentative schedule for Confluence has also been circulating. I am scheduled for six presentations on Friday August 4th and Saturday August 5th. Friday evening I will be sitting on panel discussions for “Canines & Civilization” and “Who Will Colonize the Solar System?” Saturday I kick off the day with a solo presentation “The Great Asian Space Race,” then I’ll be holding a kaffeeklatch/joint author meet and greet with Larry Ivkovich discussing the topic “Asian and European Fantasy Worlds.” You can read about Larry’s writing career at his website:
He’s promoting his new installment of the Spirit Winds novels.
Then I will be on a panel discussion for “So What Am I Missing By Not Watching Anime?” My final presentation for the weekend will be a joint book reading with Michael Arnzen, a multi-award winning Seton Hill creative writing instructor/horror author. I’ll be reading from my novel The Haunting at Ice Pine Peak, and he will be reading selections of his horror flash fiction and poetry.
It should be an exciting month!
