On September 21, Dr. Catherine Asaro will teach, “Using Science in Science Fiction,” for those writers who want to learn how to successfully integrate believable science into their fiction.

Dr. Catherine Asaro holds a Ph.D. from Harvard in chemical physics. A singer, dancer, songwriter, teacher, speaker and fiction writer, her fiction has won many awards, including the Sapphire Award, the Prism Award, and the Nebula. She has published a wide range of novels, short stories, reviews, essays, and scientific papers. You can find more information on her and her works at www.catherineasaro.net

The cost to participate is $25, which includes lunch, and is due by September 14th (one week before the workshop), though seats will likely be full well before then. You can pay me (Alexander Harris) or Jonette Butler or Dale Arnold with cash or money order in person at most of the BSFS events since we attend most of them, or you can send it through PayPal to [masked]. Please send me an e-mail first before sending via PayPal.
