Where to find me at Nine Worlds 2015

Next week I’ll be heading down to London for Nine Worlds 2015 – unfortunately due to work commitments I’m only there for one day – Sunday 9th August – but here is where you can find me:

10:00am
The Books of Doctor Who – Just how many are there anyway?
Royal C&D, 10:00am – 11:15am (Doctor Who)
with Sarah Groenewegen, Simon Guerrier, Paul Cornell
Over the past fifty years there’ve been a truly terrifying number of Doctor Who books published. From the Target novelisations of the classic series stories to the New Adventures of the nineties, the record-breaking Eighth Doctor Adventures, and the tie-ins of the New Series. What great stories can be found in Doctor Who books? How have the books influenced your views of Doctor Who?


1:30pm
The Many Roads Into Comics – Four creators discuss their way into graphic narrative
Connaught A, 1:30pm – 2:45pm (Comics)
with Maki Yamazaki, Paul Cornell, Emma Vieceli
Adam Christopher, Paul Cornell, Emma Vieceli and Maki Yamazaki talk about how they got to where they are and why they made the choices they did in shaping their careers. How much of it is luck? How much can you influence the process?

3:15pm
Writing the Other
Commonwealth West, 3:15pm – 4:30pm (All of the Books)
with Stark Holborn, Stephen Aryan, Emma Newman, Guy Haley, Naomi Foyle
There’s no description for this panel on the Nine Worlds website, but you get the gist from the title – this panel is about writing the other: other cultures, characters, people who are not you. Should be a good one.

5:00pm
The Top 5 Who Stories – …chosen to be saved from destruction
Royal C&D, 5:00pm – 6:15pm (Doctor Who)
with Katherine Jay, Amy (such_heights), Laurie Penny
There’s been a disaster in the space/time vortex! All of Doctor Who is about to be destroyed. Only our panellists can save five stories. Which five will they be and why? Will they co-operate with their fellow panellists to reach a compromise, or stand firm with their favourites and tut as they defend what are clearly appalling stories while all of Doctor Who is lost forever?

The full schedule and guest list can be found at NineWorlds.co.uk. See you in Heathrow!
