That’s right folks, Angry Robot Live is back!

We’re resuming our series of live webcast panel discussions next week on Wednesday, April 15th at 8PM EDT/5PM PDT.

This time, we’ll be discussing Contemporary Fantasy, urban and otherwise. What kinds of stories can you tell in Contemporary Fantasy? Why is Contemporary Fantasy called Urban Fantasy now, and what is the difference? Where and how does Contemporary Fantasy overlap with Crime? Romance? Horror? How like or unlike the real world does Contemporary Fantasy need to be?

Our guests will be Alyc Helms, Ferrett Steinmetz, and Tim Waggoner.

Alyc Helms‘s short fiction has appeared in Daily Science Fiction, Beneath Ceaseless Skies, Crossed Genres, and more. Her debut novel, The Dragons of Heaven, arrives June 2nd.

Ferrett Steinmetz is a Nebula-nominated writer, a prolific blogger, and author of Flex, which released on March 3rd, 2015. The sequel, The Flux, is coming October 6th.

Tim Waggoner is the author of over one hundred short stories and numerous novels, including the Nekropolis series. His new series The Shadow Watch, began with Night Terrors and continued with Dream Stalkers, released April 7th.
