Also, thanks to Sisters in Geek, who collected up this information in this article on my and other authors’ schedules, so I didn’t have to. You’re the best, Sisters in Geek!
These are excellent, interesting, Scalzi-ish topics and I am insanely jealous of those of you who are going.
I’m only going on Saturday, but I’m looking forward to seeing you again.
I have to ask: what is squishy fiction? I even tried thinking of it as “not solid” but that didn’t help. Can you give any examples? Lack of a strong (solid) structure? I’m confused.
Looking forward to seeing you!
Have a great time. Can’t wait to hear all about it
How come every time you are in Colorado, I happen to be out of town? Are you avoiding me?
The Martian – hard sf
The Martian Chronicles – softer sf

Looks like fun! Denver definitely seems to be stepping up their author game.
See you on Saturday! Can’t wait
Re “Fight the Power! Fiction for Political Change”
I remember watching a discussion for the 25 year anniversary of Do the Right Thing. Its still a great movie. And its still entirely relevant because not a damn thing has changed about racism in America.
It was very depressing.
About 130,000 people are expected to attend this year, up from 27,500 in 2012. Not bad. For comparison, Mile High Stadium, where the Broncos play, seats 76,125.
Security is expected to be tight. No gun props allowed.
