It's official! I'll be a guest speaker/program participant at the following science fiction cons this spring/summer: RavenCon, ConCarolinas, and MidAmeriCon II/The 74th Worldcon.

My most recent "Looking Back on Genre History" segment is my third (and last for now) discussion of Star Wars inspirations. This is a stand-alone segment discussing the inspirations behind the Republic's transformation into the Empire, and you can find it here on Episode 419 of StarShipSofa. (My two-part look into the science fictional and historical inspirations behind the Jedi of Star Wars include Part 1 here and Part 2 here.) This is my 80th "Looking Back" segment! If you listen, I hope you enjoy!

It's been a while since you've appeared at RavenCon. Oddly enough, I had just been checking their site and apparently they've moved to Williamsburg. Another curious aspect is that it's the same hotel that MarsCon moved to this year. The convention space is much less spread out than the previous MarsCon hotel, where you might have a panel at the opposite end of the hotel from the one you're currently at. Unfortunately, navigating the parking lot is a bitch and three quarters. Depending on your schedule, perhaps you can try out a game of Miskatonic School for Girls.

It has been ages! Thanks for the heads up re: the parking lot of the new hotel (yikes).

Sweet!

I'll probably run it Sunday morning at nine-ish, if you're not too hung over from the previous night.

Awesome! I hope we can have a chance to say hello at MidAmericaCon II! I live just south of Kansas City, so will be driving in every day.
