Upcoming, in Cherry Hill, NJ

The inaccurately, but historically, named Philcon is Nov 20-22. I have a schedule. I am on panels with lots of people I know. Which, since I'm a panel virgin, is reassuring. I shall no doubt end up being sacrificed, blood spilt. If I don't finish NaNo, that's why. I am exsanguinated.



Fri 9:00 PM in Plaza IV (Four) (1 hour)
HOT ALIEN SEX (81)

[Panelists: Phil Kahn (mod), Muriel Hykes, James Daniel Ross, Oz
Drummond, Camille Anthony, Jonathan Wright]

How do aliens do it? Use imagination


Sat 10:00 AM in Executive Suite 823 (1 hour)
MAKING THE MOST OF YOUR WRITERS GROUP (97)

[Panelists: Oz Drummond (mod), Danielle Ackley-McPhail, Gary Frank,
Laura Anne Gilman, Lawrence M. Schoen, Larry Hodges]

How do you find a good one? Are they even necessary

WRITERS WORKSHOP (69)

[Panelists: Darrell Schweitzer (mod), Oz Drummond, Gregory Frost,
Dina Leacock, Roman Ranieri]

Sat 5:00 PM in Plaza II (Two) (1 hour)
THE INVASION OF THE JANEITES (11)

[Panelists: Diane Weinstein (mod), Tom Purdom, Oz Drummond, Nick
Wolven, Susan de Guardiola]

Why are so many people in science Fiction and fantasy fascinated by
Jane Austen? We don't just mean ""Pride and Prejudice and Zombies""
but that is a good place to start


Sun 11:00 AM in Executive Suite 823 (1 hour)
THE IMPORTANCE OF CASH FLOW FOR THE NEW AUTHOR (91)

[Panelists: Sally Wiener Grotta (mod), Keith R.A. DeCandido, Laura
Anne Gilman, Christine Norris, Oz Drummond]

Why ""Don't Quit Your Day Job"" Is Such Good Advice


Sun 1:00 PM in Grand Ballroom A (1 hour)
WHERE WILL THE ROMANCE SCIENCE FICTION/FANTASY CONNECTION GO? (30)

[Panelists: Victoria Janssen (mod), Catherine Asaro, Robert
Jeschonek, L.A. Banks, Oz Drummond]

Is the cross over between Science Fiction and Fantasy and the
romance genre cresting or still on the rise? Where is it going? Is
it affecting the whole field


Yes, I did tell them I like erotica, why do you ask?

And participants in the writers' workshop shall also bleed.

They did keep you pretty busy. Of course with you a panel newbie being stuck with moderating duties isn't a good sign. Fob it off at your first opportunity.

The panel I'm moderating is a subject I'm well-versed in and I know all but one of my fellow panelists. So, no, not sweating that one at all. I organized a bunch of workshop panels for worldcon and have spent a lot of time thinking about the pros and cons. If they were going to put me as moderator somewhere, this was the place.

This was a good place to get my feet wet and get the experience.

Yes, it should be easy. I don't know who Larry Hodges is, but everyone else will make it a good experience for you.

Still no sign of my own schedule, but by peering at other LJ posts I've learned of three panels that I'm on.

spam filter? Con schedules arrived at about 6 am this morning. If alphabetical, I could see that yours might be later. But it shouldn't have mattered this much. I knew on Friday about the writing workshop session because Darrell sent us stories.

Mine showed up at 11am today, so if they are going alphabetical that would be 5 hours between D and L.

Here's another one you're on:
Sat 3:00 PM in Plaza III (Three) (1 hour)
WHY AREN'T WE WRITING ABOUT THE FUTURE ANYMORE? (32)

[Panelists: David Louis Edelman (mod), Cory Doctorow, Tom Purdom,
Gregory Frost, Lawrence M. Schoen]

Past science fiction used to take place predominantly in the future.
Why do there seem to be more and more novels set in the past? Is
this a temporary phase or a fundamental shift in the field

Thanks! Keeps me busy. With NaNo writing, I'll have my hands full on all three days.

If I can do it, anyone can! You'll have fun. Wish I could be there, but the con budget is empty for the year.

I'm sure World Fantasy killed your budget, but was worth the trip. I found a little cash was still there in the business kitty, so off I go.
