Delia Sherman at Finncon

At Finncon this summer, you can also meet GoH Ellen Kushner’s wife, the American fantasy writer and editor Delia Sherman. In addition to her literary career, she has taught science fiction and fantasy writing. Her novel The Porcelain Dove won the Mythopoeic Fantasy Award in 1994, and she is a founding member of The Interstitial Arts Foundation (http://www.interstitialarts.org/). Unfortunately none of her novels have yet been translated into Finnish, but if you are comfortable reading English, her work is worth getting to know!

For more information, see Delia Sherman’s home page: http://www.sff.net/people/kushnerSherman/Sherman/

Delia Sherman also participates in Finncon’s programme. She can be seen in several panel discussions: “Science fiction and research” on Friday, “Introduction to Mannerpunk – Fantasy of Manners” on Saturday, and “Urban fantasies” on Sunday.
