What we talk about when we talk about “book blogging”

What compels a person to blog about their reading experiences, and what happens after they do? Do writers blog because they just can’t help themselves, or is blogging the necessary evil twin to the book they preferably would be working on? What’s the deal with the book bloggers community, and would/should writers want to join the conversation?

Cross-genre Fiction

There_s often a fine line between what is considered SF and fantasy, urban fantasy and horror, steampunk and post-apocalyptic. Some works fit into several genres. Some authors deliberately create hybrid-genre works in order to explore themes and concepts from different angles, for instance how magic would work in a high-tech future, or steam-engines in the wastelands. This panel will explore these explorations.
