Manny Frishberg

MisCon 30 Panel Volunteer

Manny Frishberg was born in the shadow of New York City and has lived up and down the West Coast for more than 40 years. He spent the first half of his life learning to write stories and the second half learning what to write. He is spending the third half of his life getting it done.
His stories have been appearing in anthologies and magazines since 2010. Before that he held jobs shaping wood, sheet metal and words (not all at once).
He is a contract editor, for two small presses and independent authors. His first anthology, “Horseshoes, Hand Grenades and Magic” was published by Knotted Road Press in 2016. He and his partner have make their home near Seattle.

    Let’s discuss the current trends in genre. Are we finally leaving grim dystopia behind? Is it possible for SF to imagine hopeful futures again? Is message fiction our future, or is there still room for silly fun? This will be an audience-participation panel where we talk about what people really want to see/read, as opposed to what the media and the big houses are focused on.
