Okay, so after much biting of fingernails (and that's just me - I'm sure it was much worse for the organisers) the draft AussieCon 4 schedule is out.
Here's where I'm at...
Book launch: Macabre - A Journey Through Australia's Darkest Fears
Explore Australia's dark literature past, present, and future all in one landmark anthology! From the very earliest colonial ghost stories through to grim tales of modern life, Macabre will take you on a journey through the dark heart of Australian horror. With classic stories from Australia's masters of horror alongside the best of the new era, Macabre is set to be the finest dark fiction anthology ever produced in Australia.
Friday, Sept 3, 1600 Room 203
But this is real!
Why are we attracted to fictional horrors when real life can be so much worse?
Paul Haines, Narrelle M. Harris, Gary Kemble, Chris Lawson, Carrie Vaughn
Sunday, Sept 5, 1400 Room 204
Are attempts to censor the web an assault on our freedom or a necessary precaution? As in Australia, so to the world.
Talie Helene, Shane Jiraiya Cummings, Gary Kemble, Cory Doctorow
Monday, Sept 6, 1200 Room 210
I'm also going to be working on some features for various publications. Writing Queensland, ABC News Online, HorrorScope and my own blog. I've made a start on research for the panels and features, which I'm hoping to develop a bit more now that the election is (kinda) over.
