|Friday 8:00 pm: Grim or Grin? (Ends at: 8:55 pm)|
Panelists: Carolyn Ives Gilman, Alma Katsu, Jason Jack Miller (M), Sherin Nicole, Michelle D. Sonnier
Why has entertainment become so dark, with even superhero movies going grim and gritty, Game of Thrones bringing new meaning to "disastrous wedding", and games becoming more violent? What does this say about society? Where's the comic relief?

|Saturday 2:00 pm: The Imperial March (Ends at: 2:55 pm)|
Panelists: Catherine Asaro (M), Charles E. Gannon, Carolyn Ives Gilman, Ian Randal Strock, Lawrence Watt-Evans
Why are they always Galactic Empires? Why not republics, democracies and confederacies? Why do we assume that the future government is going to be some autocracy from the past? Is the Galactic Empire more romantic or just easier to write?

|Sunday 3:00 pm: Historical Alternates (Ends at: 3:55 pm)|
Panelists: Day Al-Mohamed (M), Tom Doyle, Carolyn Ives Gilman, Alan Smale, Howard Waldrop
Can you still write alternate history when few Americans know real history? Is that why so many alternate histories focus on Civil War and WWII? How can authors of alt hist use signposts that suggest enough about real history so people can understand the alt one.
