ATTENDING WORLDCON IN DUBLIN THIS YEAR? SO ARE WE! HERE'S WHERE TO FIND US...AND OUR AUTHORS!

1 month ago

Hello, fellow nerds! WorldCon is upon us and we are more than ready to get our nerd on! This year's con schedule has now been released and it looks glorious. One hundred and fifty two pages full of programming? All our favs talking about all the things we love? Sign us up!

Since so many Rebellion authors and editors that we love are attending (Yoon Ha Lee, Mary Robinette Kowal, Jonathan Strahan, Michael Carroll, Derek Kunsken, Adrian Tchaikovsky and so many more!) and you can find them at various panels, at Kaffeeklatsch, and at the signing area ready to sign all the books, we've put together this list below to give you a run down of where they will be and when so you don't miss them! 

Check out this timetable for things to add to your schedule and don't forget to visit the official WorldCon 2019 website for more details and the full programme. 

You can also follow us on our social media to keep up to date with all the updates.  And if you see us (David Thomas Moore, Kate Coe, Michael Rowley, Maz Smith and Remy Njambi) up and about at WorldCon, make sure to say hello!
