It looks like it’s going to be a busy convention:
“Twenty Years in the Making: A Conversation with Jack Dann”, Saturday 11:00-11:30 in The Big Top with: Jack Dann, Gillian Polack, and Jason Nahrung.
To celebrate Jack Dann’s twenty years in Australia, Satalyte Publishing is sponsoring the event: Twenty Years in the Making: In Conversation with Jack Dann. Jack will be interviewed by authors Jason Nahrung and Gillian Polack about his life and work and influence on Australian science fiction and fantasy.
We will also be launching the ebook version of Jack’s collection Jubilee, which Locus called “intelligent, moving short stories of the highest order”…and the weekend Australian wrote: “Lyrical, potent, beautifully written, Jubilee showcases the life of one of our leading fantasists.”
So come along to the celebration. We promise some surprises!
