Sweconpoddar 114 – Drakar i fantasy

Drakar har funnits sedan lång tid tillbaka inom mytologi och berättande i olika delar av världen och i olika kulturer. Trender kommer och går inom fantasy, men drakar återkommer gång på gång och är en av genrens mest utmärkande väsen. Samtidigt kan det skilja sig mycket mellan hur författare skildrar drakar. Vad är det som gör att vi tycker att just drakar är så spännande? Och vilka är panelens favoritdrakar?

Denna panel spelades in på Swecon Fantastiska 2021 i Stockholm

Medverkande: Helen Ekeroth (moderator), Mattias Kuldkepp, Florence Vilén, Anna Gable
