The Rotundo World Tour Rolls into MileHiCon!

It’s time for the last stop on the 2015 Rotundo World Tour:  MileHiCon!  Here’s my schedule:

Friday, October 23rd

4:30 pm, Video Room—Dune Discussion.  Right after the screening of Dune, join me and Vivian Caethe for a discussion of the film.  Sparks will fly during this one, I think.  You won’t want to miss it.

Saturday, October 24th

7:00 pm, Avistrum (12th floor)—Award Winners Discussion & Readings.  Looks like there will be five us reading, so we won’t have a whole lot of time, but remember:  I always bring treats to my readings.  Come for a treat, stay for a tale, that’s my motto.  Or would be, if I had a motto.

Sunday, October 25th

1:00 pm, Wind River A—Strange Stars: How SF&F Transformed Popular Music.  SF and fantasy literature has had a vast influence on TV and movies—and also on popular music, from David Bowie to Parliament Funkadelic to Iron Maiden to Radiohead to Janelle Monae. We’ll discuss how various artists have drawn from SF/F and share some of our favorites.

4:00 pm, Wind River B—Alternative Endings.  Even the best story could do with a little tweaking. We’ll discuss popular movies and books and dream up what-if endings with more spice and pizzazz.

You’ll also find me at the bar, and generally gadding about, as I am wont to do.  It’s MileHiCon, after all.

Hope to see you there!
