I’ll be on a panel this weekend with some fabulous folks
We Once Were Monster Kids: Experiencing and Writing About Weird Childhoods
DESCRIPTION: Some of the best Weird and horror fiction features child protagonists. Do children have not just a sense of wonder but also a greater comfort with The Weird? How did the panelists’ own childhood experiences and pop culture favorites lay a foundation for their own horror and Weird fiction? Panelists will also share their favorite Weird tales featuring kids, both classic and contemporary, including the recent Cooties Shot Required: There Are Things You Must Know from Broken Eye Books.
PANELISTS: Anya Martin (moderator), Craig Laurance Gidney, Gwendolyn Kiste, Ian McDowell, Eden Royce
TIME: 1:30 pm EST (10:30 am PST) October 10.
