Check Out Midwest BSFA at Pandoracon This Fall!

pandoracon RESIZED

Midwest BSFA is participating in a panel on cyberfunk at Pandoracon this fall! What is cyberfunk? Like the genre from which it gains inspiration, cyberpunk, cyberfunk is a genre of speculative fiction centered on the transformative effects of advanced science, information technology, computers and networks (“cyber”) coupled with a breakdown or radical change in the social order. Unlike cyberpunk, however, cyberfunk is expressed through an African/Black lens (“funk”). The “Cyberfunk: Cyberpunk from an African-American Perspective” panel will feature Milton Davis, the editor of the cyberfunk anthology The City, via Skype. Pandoracon, Nov. 11-13, Blue Ash, OH, http://thepandorasociety.com/pandoracon/
