Hey guys! Two pieces of news today!
#1: My essay “The Monster at the Movies: Film Adaptations of Frankenstein” is in Issue 142 of Clarkesworld Magazine. I’m so honored to be published here! You can also find my essay “Aliens Among Us: Cephalopods in Science Fiction and Fantasy” in Issue 138.
#2: I’m moderating a panel at San Diego Comic-Con! Please join us for:
Happy Birthday Frankenstein!
This upcoming Halloween, there will be an international celebration of the 200th anniversary of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein. And with that comes a plethora of books and movies rejoicing this occasion. At this panel, listen to authors talk about the influence that Mary Shelley’s writing had on their works and why people still obsess over Frankenstein. And watch as they talk about the monsters that never die in their own novels. Good luck sleeping tonight! Panelists include Merrie Destefano (Shade series), Leslie S. Klinger (The New Annotated Frankenstein), Jonathan Maberry (Glimpse, V-Wars), Kiersten White (Bright We Burn and The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein), and Carrie Sessarego of Smart Bitches, Trashy Books.
The panel will be on Saturday, July 21, in Room 7AB. See you there!
