Tor: Fantasy Evolutions and Revolutions

Tattoos that come alive; a woman who speaks with the dead, cannibalistic nuns, an empire that needs saving, and a hero who steals her brother’s destiny–there’s more to Fantasy than dragons and wizards (although those are cool too). Join authors Shelley Parker Chan (She Who Became the Sun), Brian Staveley (The Empire’s Ruin), Christopher Buhelman (The Blacktongue Thief), T. L. Huchu (The Library of the Dead), and Nghi Vo (The Chosen and the Beautiful) as they discuss the evolution of epic fantasy, your favorite tropes, and what their favorite magical disciplines are. Moderated by James Rollins (The Starless Crown).

Sunday, July 25

3:00-4:00 PM PT

Tor: The Pitfalls of Perfect Worlds

If it looks too good to be true, then it probably is–or so the old saying goes. From alternate history to utopian hopepunk, science fiction and fantasy authors create nearly perfect worlds in the pages of their books. But while these writers may tell stories about seemingly idyllic places and societies, they also explore the problems that are interlocked with that. Join P. Djeli Clark (A Master of Djinn), Kerstin Hall (Star Eater), Catherynne M. Valente (Comfort Me With Apples), and Becky Chambers (A Psalm for the Wild-Built) as they discuss the dark side of perfection. Moderated by Tor.com Publishing editor Ruoxi Chen.
