Award-Winning Editor of Clarkesworld Magazine, Forever Magazine, The Best Science Fiction of the Year, and More


This weekend, I’ll be attending Philcon, a local science fiction convention. This year’s guest of honor is Clarkesworld regular, Catherynne M. Valente. I decided not to get a table in the dealer’s room (health reasons), but I will bring some Clarkesworld chapbooks on the off chance someone there wants some. 🙂

I had hoped to be on an ebook panel (I’ve been having fun on those lately), but it looks like that won’t be the case. Here are the panels you can find me at:

Fri 10:00 PM in Plaza III (Three)—Meet The Editors
Danielle Ackley-McPhail (mod), Neil Clarke, Marvin Kaye, Gordon Linzner, Bill Olver 

Magazine and book editors tell us about what they buy and what they are looking for. If you’re interested in selling your story, this panel is where you need to be!

Sun 2:00 PM in Crystal Ballroom Two—It Came From the Slushpile
Gordon Linzner (mod), Neil Clarke, Neal Levin, Alex Shvartsman

Editors describe really strange things they have received in unsolicited submissions. Some are funny, some are awful, and some are just plain sad.

I’ll be wandering aimlessly the rest of the time. Maybe I’ll run into some of you in the lobby, bar or dealer’s room!

    Neil – talk to us at program ops when you pick up your badge. We may be able to add you to ebook panels.

  2. Thanks Steph! I think the panel I saw listed was more reader-focused (where, what) than business-focused (how-to, best practices, why), but it could still be fun.
