When LibertyCon 26 hits town June 28-30, space-scientist-turned novelist Stephanie Osborn will be an author guest as well as appearing on a number of panels.
Review for Stephanie Osborn:
Ms. Osborn, who is fresh from a featured role in April’s 221b Con in Atlanta (where she was filmed for CBS’s “Sunday Morning” show), has tapped a cultural vein with her “Displaced Detective” series, starring a Sherlock Holmes who’s transported to this century through a wormhole. The book series is attracting the same fans who are swooning over the BBC “Sherlock” series, now filming its third season, who made “Elementary” a success on television this season, and who flock to the Robert Downey Jr. Holmes movies.
The “Dreams of Steam: A Steampunk Anthology,” to which she contributed a story, has also generated excellent fan reception and critical reviews.
At this year’s LibertyCon, Ms. Osborn will be doing a reading, as well as appearing on several science and steampunk panels. The reading will be Friday, June 28, at 3 p.m. She will be on the Space Update Panel Saturday, June 29, at 11 a.m., the Steampunk Research Roundtable at 11 a.m., the World of Steampunk Roundtable at 5 p.m. and the Mad Scientist Roundtable at 11 p.m. She will also be part of the Coming Transhuman Revolution Sunday, June 30, at noon.
