Philcon or Bust!

I’ll be putting in an appearance at Philcon this weekend, the longest running science fiction and fantasy convention in the world.  If you’re going to be there, say hi!  Here’s my schedule:

Fri 10:00 PM in Plaza V (Five)
THE ONLY GOOD ORC IS A DEAD ORC

This should be a fun conversation about the nature of evil and villains in fiction.  The question is whether all villains need to be sympathetic and human, or whether there is value in entirely evil villains who are bad just because they’re, well, bad.

Sat at 13:00:00 in Plaza II (Two)
I LEARNED ALL THE SCIENCE I NEEDED FROM A BOTTLE OF SCOTCH

Do you have to know science in order to write fiction about science?  Discuss…

Sat 8:00 PM in Executive Suite 623
READING from my upcoming book SUPERPOSITION

David is a science fiction and fantasy author, which gives him the freedom to explore far beyond the limits of real life and the everyday. His books explores themes that skirt the edges of science and religion, such as human origins, the nature of truth, the certainty of death, and the nature of the soul. He does all his writing at home, where he lives with his wife and seven children. It’s a lively and clamorous place, full of fun, love, and chaos. His latest novel is SUPERPOSITION, a quantum physics murder mystery with the same mind-bending, breathless action as films like INCEPTION and MINORITY REPORT. His other works include the Philip K. Dick Award-winning novel TERMINAL MIND, the historical fantasy QUINTESSENCE (Tor, 2013) and its sequel, QUINTESSENCE SKY.
