Kyoto Presentation

Posted on Aug 25, 2009 in Appearances | 2 comments

I’ve been invited to speak at a symposium on sustainability in Kyoto, Japan called “Towards the Future of Civilization,” so I’ll be out of the country for the next ten days. I’m planning on speaking about what inspires me to construct the dystopias that I do, the primary trends I’m seeing in the world, and then talking some about how I might imagine a world that breaks those trends. It will be almost Utopian. For me, at least. I’ll also be riding at least one bullet train. Which pretty much makes me go,...

Posted on Jan 27, 2009 in Appearances |

On Saturday, February 7th at 6:30pm, (that’s just a week and a half away), I’ll be doing a reading and book signing at DreamHaven Books in Minneapolis.

We have free store parking in back of the building (you can enter from E 38th St). The 22G, 22H, 14B, and 23 buses run by the store. There is also a Light Rail stop 7 blocks away on E 38th...

Yes, I’m going to Worldcon. But no, I will not be on any programming. Why? Because I’m an almost pathological procrastinator and never got around to signing up to be a participant. Amazing how that works. In any case, I will still be in attendance, slacking, bar-flying and dealers-room pillaging instead. Hope to see you...

I’ll be at Readercon this year, July 17-20. Here’s my schedule: Friday 11:00 AM, ME/ CT: Talk / Discussion (60 min.) Science Fiction as a Mirror for Reality. Robert J. Sawyer with discussion by Paolo Bacigalupi, Michael A. Burstein, Lancer Kind, Hildy Silverman, _et al_ Science fiction has always been a powerful vehicle for commenting on the here-and-now, letting us explore the burning issues of today in the guise of talking about tomorrow. Sawyer is currently under contract with the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation to host and co-produce a pilot for a web-based new-media series based on this idea. He’ll talk about sf as a mirror of reality, discuss the...
