FedCon 29 | Vortrag | Elf versus Roboter | by Robert Corvus

Every genre has its archetypes: The elves belong to fantasy like the robots belong to science fiction.

Beautiful, pointy-eared, long-haired, accurate with the bow and magically gifted on the one hand.

Metallic, emotionally cold, rational, quick to deduce with a laser and optimised for its function on the other.

At first glance, elves and robots don’t have much in common either, but a closer look reveals similarities. They are long-lived, their thinking and ethics do not conform to human conventions, but within their community and with their habitat they are closely connected. In the end, are they closer than they seem? For example, in terms of their dramaturgical function when it comes to writing novels?

This is the question that bestselling author Robert Corvus explores in his lecture Elves versus Robots.

Lecturer: Robert Corvus
Duration: 60 min  -  The Lecture will be held in: german
With Robert Corvus we welcome one of Germany's most successful fantasy authors at FedCon. Currently the final volume of his trilogy Gezeiten der Macht has been published with Ruinen der Macht. Titles like Feuer der Leere and Das Imago-Projekt preceded it. He was active in BattleTech and occasionally writes for the biggest science fiction series in the world: Perry Rhodan. Together with Bernhard Hennen, Robert adapts one of the basic adventure campaigns of the role play The Dark Eye, Die Phileasson-Saga, as a twelve-part novel series.

Robert Corvus has been a full-time writer since 2013. Before that, writing was a hobby and a sideline for 25 years.

Robert was a soldier, management consultant and project manager in international corporations. He travelled around the world with his backpack, made a pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela and taught karate. After stations in Münster and Sindelfingen he now lives in Cologne.
