A room full of genre fiction writers is my idea of heaven. It’s nice to be in a room full of people who won’t roll their eyes when you proudly announce “I write genre fiction!” So it was a no brainer to go to Genrecon in Brisbane this year, attended by writers of romance, sci-fi, fantasy, crime and everything in between. I had a fantastic weekend bantering with other authors, percolating ideas and being entertained by Mary Robinette Kowal’s insane level of talent (I mean, who else can write novels and work as the right hand of Oscar the Grouch?).
Here’s a little write up of some of the panels I attended.
