“What was a book? Not just ink and fiber and stitchery: a series of processes. To a wizard, it was not a static object–but a human thought caught and bound, made concrete through sacred technology. Magic, then, and a deep form of it.”
― Elizabeth Bear,
Please join us as we welcome Elizabeth Bear to Trollhaugen for two very special events. On Tuesday, April 23rd, 2:00pm – 3:00pm she will arrive at the Fantasy Faire in her avatar form for an interview. On Friday, April 26th, 2:00pm – 3:00pm, she will again visit the Faire to read to us from her works.
Elizabeth Bear is a full-time science fiction and fantasy writer, and a part-time futurist. A deeper description comes from her website, elizabethbear.com:
She is the Hugo, Sturgeon, Locus, and Campbell Award winning author of dozens of novels; over a hundred short stories; and a number of essays, nonfiction, and opinion pieces for markets as diverse as Popular Mechanics and The Washington Post.
Elizabeth is a frequent contributor to the Center for Science and the Imagination at ASU, and has spoken on futurism at Google, DARPA’s 100 Year Starship Project, and the White House, among others.
A prolific writer, Bear has amassed an impressive body of work, which includes novels, poems, essays, and short stories. The Internet Speculative Fiction Database has done a good job of corralling her works into an easy reference guide. They even include her reviews and interviews.
