Keyholes and Secret Doors
Do you really have to outgrow a fantasy world? Let’s talk about the obsession with childhood and innocence in portal fantasies, and keeping your magic into adulthood.
The week before, I will also be on two panels at Lexicon, the National Science Fiction convention of New Zealand and will be at the Masquerade as well:
Masquerade and Concert
Marvel at the costuming skills on display in fandom’s equivalent to the World of Wearable Art, then listen to Seanan McGuire sing! Prizes will be awarded for best costumes.

Classic SF Predicts the Future
We often look back on classic Science Fiction to see if they “got it right.” What are some great predictions which came true and why are we so obsessed with it? Moderator Alan Robson with Alex Lindsay, Kaaron Warren, and Paul Weimer.
