The organizers heavy-loaded me up front. Here’s my schedule:
11:00 am Pen Names, with Mikey Brooks and others
1:00 pm Writing from an Outline, with Rob Wells and others
2:00 pm Modern Fantasy and its Relation to Folklore, with Mikey Brooks and others
3:00 pm The Inklings and Their Disciples, with Michael R. Collings and others
2:00 pm Jules Verne, with Deren Hansen, Brett Peterson, and others
6:00 pm Originality, with Nathan Shumate and others
I’m pretty amused that the panel descriptions for both Modern Fantasy and The Inklings include references to J.K. Rowling, and I don’t think she belongs in either. With luck, this will occasion sharp disagreement and maybe even a brawl.
Look for me also at evening filking, and in the dealer room.
