Time Travel Lecture with Connie Willis, Ted Chiang and Amy H. Sturgis

Tony C. Smith of StarshipSofa sends word about a Holedeck Workshop Time Travel Lecture webinar featuring Connie Willis, Ted Chiang and Amy H. Sturgis taking place on July 23rd, 2011

at 5 PM GMT (though recordings will be made available later if you miss it).

From Tony’s email:

Come along and listen to two award-winning SF writers at the top of their games, Connie Willis and Ted Chiang, as they give a live online talk/lecture on the idea and literature of time travel.

Connie Willis has a staggering ten Hugo Awards and six Nebula Awards to her name; as an author of multiple time travel novels and stories herself, including Blackout/All Clear, which won the 2011 Nebula Award, she is especially well suited to address this fascinating subject. Ted Chiang is one of the world’s leading SF short story writers, with stories like the Hugo-winning “Exhalation” and the Nebula and Hugo-winning time travel story “The Merchant and the Alchemist’s Gate” to his credit, and thus he is a key voice in any discussion of the subject of time travel.

Joining them is award-winning genre scholar Amy H. Sturgis, Ph.D., who will share her top picks for “Must Read” time travel fiction. Her most recent critical essay related to time travel will appear in the summer 2011 collection Fringe Science: Parallel Universes, White Tulips, and Mad Scientists.

You’ll leave this event with fresh insights into the SF theme of time travel and a terrific reading list, as well!
