Cats in Science Fiction and Fantasy panel
September 3, 2022, 11:30 am - 12:30 pm PDT
Cats in Science Fiction and Fantasy: From Data’s pet Spot in Star Trek: TNG to the feline quests and myths in Tad Williams’ Tailchaser’s Song, from the giant cat steeds in Tomi Adeyemi’s Children of Blood and Bone to C.J. Cherryh’s space-faring hani and many similarly furry, bewhiskered aliens—what is it about cats that capture the characters’ and readers’ interest? How do they help the plot or enhance the setting? This panel will discuss all things feline in speculative fiction.
