AnomalyCon is thrilled to announce an entire plethora of new special guests for 2015!
We are most thrilled to announce that Cory Doctorow will be joining us!
Cory Doctorow (craphound.com) is a science fiction author, activist, journalist and blogger — the co-editor of Boing Boing (boingboing.net) and the author of young adult novels like HOMELAND, PIRATE CINEMA and LITTLE BROTHER and novels for adults like RAPTURE OF THE NERDS and MAKERS. He is the former European director of the Electronic Frontier Foundation and co-founded the UK Open Rights Group. Born in Toronto, Canada, he now lives in London.
We’re also thrilled to say that tickets for Cory’s session at Breakfast with Brilliance–at which he will be available for digital keysigning in addition to a reading, q&a, and other shenanigans with breakfast–will be available for just $10. Since weekend passes are currently only $20, that’s an awesome deal!
We’ll also be joined by S.J. Chambers.
S. J. Chambers’ fiction and poetry has appeared in a variety of venues including Mungbeingmagazine (which is currently running her wino-fiction serial Vintage Scenes), New Myths, Yankee Pot Roast, and in anthologies such as the World Fantasy nominated Thackery T. Lambshead’s Cabinet Of Curiosities (HarperCollins, 2011), Zombies: Shambling Through The Ages (Prime Books, 2013), The New Gothic (Stone Skin Press, 2013), the Spanish Steampunk anthologies Planes B and Acronos II (Tyrannosaurus Books, 2014), and in the forthcoming Steampunk World (Alliteration Ink, 2014) and the Starry Wisdom Library (PS Publishing, 2014) collections.
Her non-fiction has appeared at Tor.Com, Bookslut, WeirdFictionReview.com, and Strange Horizons (where she was also the Articles Senior Editor for two years). She has been nominated for a Pushcart prize, and her first book, The Steampunk Bible (Abrams Image, 2011) co-authored with Jeff Vandermeer, was nominated for the Hugo and World Fantasy award.
She can be found to blog irregularly at www.selenachambers.wordpress.com
J.A. Campbell is writing a 4-piece short story for our new newsletter! You can find out more about her at her website: www.writerjacampbell.com.
Van Aaron Hughes is also joining us! He writes science fiction and fantasy short fiction. His story “The Dualist” was a winner in the Writers of the Future Contest. His fiction has appeared in The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction, Writers of the Future Vol. 27, InterGalactic Medicine Show, and other publications.
Finally, we’re thrilled to announce that we are adding both a History track and a Safety and Sexuality track for 2015! We can’t wait to see you there!
Pardon the dust–we’re hoping to have a new facelift here in just a few days.
