Conflux, held in Canberra later this year, reports that it will feature a Q&A session with John Scalzi hosted by Cat Sparks.
Scalzi is a former president of the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America. He is best known for his Old Man's War series, three novels of which have been nominated for the Hugo Award, and for his blog Whatever, where he has written on a number of topics since 1998. He won the Hugo Award for Best Fan Writer in 2008 based predominantly on that blog, which he has also used for several charity drives. His novel Redshirts won the 2013 Hugo Award for Best Novel. He has written non-fiction books and columns on diverse topics such as finance, video games, films, astronomy, writing and politics, and served as a creative consultant for the TV series Stargate Universe.
John Scalzi is also a well-known "Twitter Machine", and you can follow him or find out more <@scalzi>.
Conflux will be held over three days in 2019, October 5 to October 7 at the Gungahlin library in Canberra. Find out more about Conflux at <https://conflux.org.au/>.
Conflux is Canberra’s longest-running spec fiction (sci fi, fantasy & horror) convention. It focuses on all things speculative and has a strong program for writers of the genre, as well as all the usual panels, discussions, cosplay & social stuff.
