That debate, recorded

You can now see the discussion on Women In Genre which I took part in earlier this month. Fellow SF author and participant Stephanie Saulter has kindly pulled together the footage shot on the night and it is accessible via her website.

I suspect I come across as rather cynical (I say ‘suspect’ because I haven’t watched the recording yet, and may not, as I hate seeing myself on film).  This isn’t deliberate but, well, I am. We’ve had this discussion before. Nothing changes.

Having said that, my fellow panellists did have things to add, as the social media revolution has changed how we view and respond to the world. I was especially impressed with Karen Lord, and her injunction that we support the points we’re trying to make with well-researched arguments.
