Betty’s next public appearances will be at Capricon XXXVI, Feb. 11–14 in Wheeling, Ill. See her at these events:

  • Autographing
    Friday, 11:30 a.m. to 12:15 p.m., Autograph Table

  • Political Propaganda in SF
    Friday, 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m., Birch B
    Science fiction and fantasy literature often has politics at the core of the story, and where there’s politics, there’s propaganda. What stories have done it well? What influence does the “real world” have upon authors in this aspect of the genre?
    With Amanda Daly, Chris Gerrib, Gail Z. Martin and Isabel Schechter.

  • Beginning, Middle, and End
    Saturday, 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., Willow
    Does structure matter when telling a story? Should there be a clearly defined beginning, middle, and end? Is it really needed? Can the end come first, or in the middle?
    With Tim Akers, Elizabeth Bear, Richard Chwedyk and Phyllis Eisenstein.

  • Just One Little Change
    Saturday, 2:30 p.m. to 4 p.m. Botanic Garden B
    How minor changes in the history of your world can drastically alter it and create alternative universes, dimensions, and realities.
    With Dale Cozort and Steven H. Silver.
