Chicon8--World Science Fiction Convention 2022, or "How I (am going to spend) My Summer Vacation"

Image
Woot! I'm finally going back to an in-person #Worldcon, and very much looking forward to seeing friends and fans once again at #Chicon8. I haven't visited Chicago since Chicon7 ten years ago, so it will be good to be back. I have my Program Participant Schedule, and these panels should be entertaining (and informative)! The (m) after my name means I'm moderating that panel. Look for me there, and say "Hi!" Thursday, September 1, 2022, 11:30 CDT Super Sex Darlene Marshall (m) she/her  Jeffe Kennedy she/her  Meg Elison she/they  Penelope Flynn She/Her Description: Do superheroes "bone," as a Tor.com post wondered? Certainly, but it's not shown a whole lot in TV or in film, no matter what the sexual orientation. Romance blooms, and the occasional film features a love scene, but the actual explorations of how sex would work between "super" characters—much less relationships—tends to take a back seat to violence, explosions, and origin stories.
