Science Fiction

I have been a panelist at a large number of coventions, including several Worldcons. More recently I have also given solo presentations, mostly as either a Guest of Honour or a Keynote Speaker. Here are some subjects I have given talks on.

  • The Prehistory of Robotics – a history of robots from ancient times up to the invention of the word “robot” by the ńĆapek brothers
  • Worldbuidling with Sex and Gender – how to use examples from the amazing diversity of animal life on Earth to create interesting aliens
  • Hail to the Q.U.E.E.N. – a history of the time-traveling android revolutionary, Cindi Mayweather
