My Aussiecon 4 Schedule:

Girl meets boy meets dragon: Romance in fantasy
Fantasy and romance have always seemed natural bedfellows. What can
romance bring to the fantasy story, and what do fantasy elements
provide to the romance? What are the challenges of writing a story
that combines both genres - neither of which seem to get the critical
respect that they deserve? Is there a common element between the two
genres that makes their combination work so effectively?

Monster mash-ups
Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. Sense and Sensibility and
Sea-Monsters. Little Vampire Women. Jane Slayre—it’s open season on
the classics as well as the undead. Just what is going on here and
where did it all start?
