CyberPunk 2020: Year of the Stainless Steel Rat

On December 27th, 2020, Walter Jon Williams will be speaking at a free online convention: “Cyberpunk 2020: Year of the Stainless Steel Rat.”

So will I.

The conference will be a day-long exploration of various cyberpunk & post-cyberpunk themes. Topic areas will include everything from culture and politics to technology and gaming.

You should attend.

Under the As If imprint, I write, edit and publish fiction (mostly of the speculative variety) and games (mostly of the roleplaying variety).
