My programme for SUPANOVA PERTH


Apart from lunch between 1pm and 2pm, I'll be available for chatting, signing, whatever (and as I will be a lot less in demand than the mega stars, there will really be time to chat!!)

And, as well:

Saturday 3.30-4.20pm in the Supanova Seminar Room
Panel Name: Mr or Mrs Smith?
Panelists: Keri Arthur, Glenda Larke, Bruce McCabe and David Henley

Sunday 3.10-4pm in the Supanova Seminar Room
Panel name: Blood on your hands
Panelists: Jo Spurrier, Lara Morgan, Robin Hobb, Scott Baker, Colin Taber

Panel descriptions:
  • Mr or Mrs Smith?: Gender in fantasy & Science Fiction – Was Peter Jackson correct to add a female character to the film adaption of ‘The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug’? What causes an author to create a female or male protagonist and does the publishing industry, society or even the fans influence this decision? Come and hear our guest authors take on this contentious topic.
  • ·Blood on your hands: The art of killing, maiming and torturing your favourite characters – Come and see how our guest authors deal with making their characters’ lives a living hell, while still keeping the reader on the edge of their seats and wanting more.
