My Necronomicon Providence Schedule

It’s been over three years since I’ve been to a convention! So, I’m certainly looking forward to attending the upcoming Necronomicon Providence (August 18-21). I’ll be moderating two panels on international weird fiction, and also doing a reading. Here are the details, in chronological order.

Friday 9:30-10:45 a.m.

AUTHOR READINGS – Narragansett Bay Room, Graduate Hotel, 17th floor
F. Brett Cox, Nicole Cushing, Jon Padgett, Laura Tempest Zakroff

Friday 11:00 a.m. -12:15 p.m.

Central and Eastern European Weird Fiction – Waterplace Ballroom, Omni Hotel, 2nd floor
The nations of Central and Eastern Europe draw on related but different cultural traditions, and the period of the Cold War created a unique set of barriers to cultural exchange for decades. Panelists discuss the weird fiction of these nations, including work available in English translation and not.

Panelists: Michał Choiński, Michael Cisco, Nicole Cushing (M), Elena Tchougounova-Paulson

Friday – 7-9 p.m.

GUEST RECEPTION – Outdoor Terrace, Graduate Hotel, 3rd Floor
A private reception for Guests-of-Honor, Guests, and Golden Key holders – hors d’oeuvres provided, cash bar available. The reception will feature the presentation of the Robert Bloch and the new Joe Pulver (The Beastie!) Awards.

Saturday – 3:30-4:45pm

A World of Pain: Pessimistic Weird Fiction from Asia, Continental Europe, and the Middle East – Capital Ballroom, Graduate Hotel, 2nd floor
A discussion of the works of stellar (but under-recognized) writers such as Sadegh Hedayat, Witold Gombrowicz, Bruno Schulz, Mário de Sá-Carneiro, Sakutarō Hagiwara, Leonid Andreyev and others. Panelists discuss their work, their influence on English-language writers, and the publishers (often, small presses and university presses) who have done a good job of getting English translations of their work into print.
Panelists: Michał Choiński, Michael Cisco, Nicole Cushing (M), Elena Tchougounova-Paulson
