Semi-Final Program Grid for Iver Cooper
This is the Semi-Final program schedule. Iver Cooper 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.
|Saturday 3:00 pm: Life and Death of the Shared Universe (Ends at: 3:55 pm)|
Panelists: Iver Cooper (M), Meriah Lysistrata Crawford, Annette Klause, Lawrence M. Schoen
Why did these become so popular? What about Wildcards and others made them survive? Can the Internet revive this form? Or is its demise a victory of art over commercialization?
|Sunday 12:00 pm: Magic's Price (Ends at: 12:55 pm)|
Panelists: Iver Cooper, Val Griswold-Ford, Michelle D. Sonnier (M), Jim Stratton, Allen Wold
How do magic users tap mystical powers, and since there are no free lunches what is the price? What authors create the most interesting magical systems? What do authors do when the magic user becomes too powerful?
|Sunday 1:00 pm: A Literary History of Dragons (Ends at: 1:55 pm)|
Panelists: Iver Cooper, Marianne Mancusi, James Maxey (M), Patrick Scaffido, Lawrence Watt-Evans
Dragons have been making appearances in stories for ages. Once they were only monsters. But now they have evolved and are no longer limited to being evil. Dragons are self-aware and often protagonists. From Beowulf to Temeraire: Dragons through the Ages and on the Pages.
