The 33rd International Conference on the Fantastic in the Arts

Our own Terry Weyna is at this very moment attending the International Conference on the Fantastic in the Arts in Orlando Florida. The theme is “The Monstrous Fantastic” and guests of honor include China Miéville, Kelly Link, Jeffrey J. Cohen, and Brian Aldiss. Terry is presenting a paper called Fantastic Romantics: Romantics as Characters in Fantastic Fiction: Edgar Allan Poe. She’ll also be chairing a panel called Monsters and Superheroes. We look forward to hearing from Terry about her time at the IAFA conference.

Do you attend conferences or conventions related to the arts? Is there a local SFF convention in your area? Tell us about it. We’ll pick one commenter to choose a book from the stacks.
