Here’s Analog editor Trevor Quachri rocking the Analog/Asimov’s party at WFC 2015 in Saratoga Springs, NY. This annual gathering of the clan of fiction writers, editors, artists, and agents focuses on mainly on fantasy, though horror and science fiction have been known to creep into the discussions. Happily, a wonderfully warm Indian Summer has put us all in fine spirits. Then too, Trevor and Sheila and Emily know how to throw a party.
Thus far, I’ve participated on a panel about the origins of fantasy stories in myths and legends, which had a variety of interesting perspectives. I’ve also enjoyed panels and readings by several of my writer friends, all of whom were well prepared, entertaining, and generally terrific. I have another panel today about archaeology in fantasy literature. As a former archaeologist, this is a topic close to my heart.
