Semi-Final Program Grid for Larry Hodges
This is the Semi-Final program schedule. Larry Hodges may or may not actually be on these items, but probably will. However, due to circumstances beyond our control, modifications to the program can occur throughout the convention.
|Friday 4:00 pm: Comic relief (Ends at: 4:55 pm)|
Panelists: Doug Fratz, Larry Hodges, James Maxey (M), Lawrence M. Schoen
How much comic relief can you put in a book before it gets shifted into the humor category? Does humor hurt or enhance a serious novel? Does it throw you out of the story if you expect Song of Ice and Fire and get a line right out of Xanth? What are examples of writers who get it right/wrong?
|Saturday 1:00 pm: 21st Century Classics (Ends at: 1:55 pm)|
Panelists: Larry Hodges, Walter H. Hunt, Michael D. Pederson (M)
What makes a book a classic? What modern works, published since 2000 do you think should be added to the list of classic SF and Fantasy works. What do you think people will still be reading in 50 years? Will Harry Potter be an eternal children’s must-read like Narnia?
|Saturday 11:00 pm: Shortest fiction (Ends at: 11:55 pm)|
Panelists: Larry Hodges, Dina Leacock, Craig Alan Loewen, Jennifer Pelland, Jamie Todd Rubin (M)

|Sunday 12:00 pm: My First Time (Ends at: 12:55 pm)|
Panelists: Larry Hodges, Diana Peterfreund (M), Alan Smale
