Semi-Final Program Grid for Hildy Silverman
This is the Semi-Final program schedule. Hildy Silverman 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: Editors' Pet Peeves (Ends at: 4:55 pm)|
Panelists: Mike McPhail, Norm Sherman (M), Alex Shvartsman, Hildy Silverman
The next great story has been sent to the editor. But the author did this…
|Friday 9:00 pm: That's Not My Sex (Ends at: 9:55 pm)|
Panelists: Brenda W. Clough, Craig Alan Loewen, James Morrow, Sharyn November, Hildy Silverman, Janine Spendlove (M)
Writing other genders. Women writing male characters. Men writing women. Do they seem off? Who does it well? Can you tell James Tiptree was a woman from her fiction?
|Saturday 10:00 am: When the Dark (Fiction) Comes Rising -- Where Horror and Fantasy Collide (Ends at: 10:55 am)|
Panelists: Pamela K. Kinney, Dina Leacock, Craig Alan Loewen, Jason Jack Miller, Darrell Schweitzer, Hildy Silverman (M)
What is Dark Fiction and how is it different from light horror? How wide is the scope? What stories are good examples? Is there room for expansion into unexplored areas?
|Saturday 11:00 am: Writers and Fandom (Ends at: 11:55 am)|
Panelists: Catherine Asaro, Laura Anne Gilman, Pamela K. Kinney (M), Jamie Todd Rubin, Hildy Silverman
Some authors were fans before they wrote, others came to the convention scene after getting their start. How does that affect fan interaction? Does it make a difference in how authors view conventions?
|Saturday 4:00 pm: Doctor Who (Ends at: 4:55 pm)|
Panelists: Kate Baker, Victoria Janssen (M), Kathryn Morrow, Hildy Silverman, Jon Skovron
Doctors have become more emotional. Peter Capaldi is the 12th doctor, what adventures will he have? Will the BBC accept a different kind of Doctor? One of color, female, or transgender?
|Sunday 12:00 am: Eye of Aragon (Ends at: 12:55 am)|
Panelists: Hildy Silverman, Ian Randal Strock, Michael A. Ventrella (M)
Our panelists read the worst fantasy story ever written, mistakes and all, and if they laugh or read it incorrectly, they are forced to act out the story. Just try not to fall over laughing!
|Sunday 10:00 am: Reading: Hildy Silverman (Ends at: 10:25 am)|
Panelists: Hildy Silverman
|Sunday 2:00 pm: Is SF/Fantasy too Big for TV (Ends at: 2:55 pm)|
Panelists: Eric Choi, Hildy Silverman, Elaine Stiles (M), Christopher Weuve
Science Fiction and Fantasy dominate videogames and top movies, so why so little love on tv? Or is this changing?
