I will be at the World Horror Convention in Atlanta next month (May 7-10). I was invited to moderate a panel on WHC’s Lifetime Achievement Winner Tanith Lee. It is an unexpected honor. Lee will not be there, due to health reasons. (She is intensely private, but this information has ‘leaked’). I will also be on another panel.

My schedule is as follows:

FRIDAY, MAY 8:

10-11 AM        Panel: Dancing With Darkness: A Tribute to HWA Lifetime Achievement Award Winner Tanith Lee – DUNWICH

Moderator: Craig Laurence Gidney. Panelists: Ellen Datlow, Naima Haviland, Mandy Slater, Lisa Tuttle

1-2 PM           Panel: WORLD HORROR: Different Visions: African-American Spec-Lit From Afro-Futurism to Beloved – SARNATH

Moderator: Balogun Ojetade. Panelists: Jeff Carroll, Gerald Coleman, Crystal Connor, Craig Laurence Gidney, John Edward Lawson
