Science Fiction in Person in New York in March

March is shaping up to be a break-out month for science fiction in the flesh - or at in-person events - in the New York area.   Here are three where I'll be talking about all sorts of wild and profound things:

  • March 1, 6-9pm, "Science Fiction, Language, and General Semantics," panel with Paul Levinson, Ed Tywoniak, Marleen Barr, and Lance Strate - for the New York Society of General Semantics, at The Players Club, 16 Gramercy Park S., New York City - admission FREE - details here ... [added March 3, 2017: video of my talk here]
  • March 4, 12noon-2pm, "Why the Impossibility of Time Travel Makes Such Good Fiction," I'll be talking for at least an hour, to the Garden State Speculative Fiction Writers, and then we'll go to questions and answers - Old Bridge Public Library, One Old Bridge Plaza, Municipal Center, Old Bridge, NJ -admission FREE - details here
  • March 10-12, HELIOsphere, DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Tarrytown, 455 South Broadway, Tarrytown, New York - my events: FRIDAY (March 10) 5:30pm - 7:00pm - "Religion in Sci Fi and Fantasy" (panel); SATURDAY (March 11) 2:30pm - 4:00pm - "Robots 201: After the Three Laws" (panel) ; SUNDAY (March 12) 12noon - 1:30pm - Westworld and the Civil Rights of Robots" (solo talk); reading & autographing (times to be announced) - details here
And, just to whet your appetite for some of what I'll be discussing re: time travel, The Chronology Protection Case movie just became free on Amazon Prime.  It's a 40-minute short, adapted by Jay Kensinger from my 1995 Nebula-nominated novelette published in Analog, and reprinted six times. The movie was made in 2002 but has been recut with a new, extended ending.   (The original novelette is available here.)
