In just a few short weeks I will be at the 2019 WorldCon in Dublin, Ireland. My schedule is short, but sweet!
15 Aug 2019, Thursday 14:00 – 14:50, Level 4 Foyer (CCD)
I’ll be autographing books and other swag!
Invented mythologies in SF
18 Aug 2019, Sunday 19:00 – 19:50, Wicklow Hall 2B (CCD)
Whether it’s creation myths for sentient AIs or a pantheon of alien gods, invented mythologies can add depth and weight to SF storytelling. How have myths from our own past informed the creation of fictitious mythologies in SF? Where do you start when inventing mythology? What makes a mythos convincing, and how do you subtly weave your mythology into the narrative?
Fellow panelists include Fonda Lee (Author of the Green Bone Saga) and Adrian Tchaikovsky (Author of Children of Time and Children of Ruin)!
Reading: Marina J. Lostetter
19 Aug 2019, Monday 11:00 – 11:20, Wicklow Room-5 (Workshops) (CCD)
I will be giving a reading on, yes, Monday morning. I know it’s a tough time slot, but I want to make it worth your while to attend! I’ll be giving away books and reading from either Noumenon Ultra (the third book in the Noumenon series) or from the first book in my brand fantasy trilogy from Tor Books (previously titled The Masks of Arkensyre). Audience’s choice! Both will be brand-new, never before read!

After WorldCon I’ll be roaming Ireland, Northern Ireland, and the UK for several weeks. I don’t have any formal signings planned, but if there’s a bookshop you think I should visit and sign stock, let me know in the comments and I’ll try to get there during my travels.
Hope to see you soon! Happy reading!
