Sci-Fi Fantasy Day: An Afternoon of Aliens, Dragons, Magic and Other Worlds at Kepler's
Saturday, November 15, 1:00pm - 5:00pm
Kepler's Books
1010 El Camino Real
Menlo Park, CA 94025

Here's the plan for the afternoon:

1:00pm: Other Worlds
Andy Weir (The Martian) in conversation with Matthew Jobin  (The Nethergrim)


2:30pm: A Class in Dothraki with David Peterson
Are you a fan of Game of Thrones (and aren't we all)? Dream of joining Daenerys in her march toward King's Landing to claim the Iron Throne? Then join us in a class to master Dothraki with David Peterson, author of Living Language Dothraki and language consultant for the HBO series.


4:00pm: Face-off: Sci Fi Versus Fantasy. (What's the Difference and Which Is Better?)
Writers Marie Brennan, Chaz Brenchley, Ellen Klages, and Pat Murphy will debate the differences between science fiction and fantasy  and which is better. And yes, you'll get to vote!


5:00pm: Steven Erikson in conversation with Tad Williams
Meet the man behind the Malazan Book of the Fallen series talking to the man behind the Otherland series.

All the authors will be around talking about writing and their books. They probably can even be convinced to sign a copy of one of their brilliant novels for you!

And finally, announcing the Kepler's Science Fiction/ Fantasy Fiction Prize! For an unpublished science fiction or fantasy fiction novel by an unpublished (fiction) author. The story must have a science fiction or fantasy element.

Submit the first 25 pages to angelam@keplers.com (please put Kepler's Science Fiction/Fantasy Fiction Prize in the subject line) or via mail to Angela Mann, Kepler's Books, 1010 El Camino Real, Menlo Park CA 94025. Judging will be done by Kepler's staff. The winner will have his/her book - once published - featured in the window of the store for at least a week.

Submissions must be received by November 1, 2014

The prize will be announced at the end of the event.
