Why do people write fanfic? Is it fair use or unfair abuse? How is it different from retellings of Greek myths or King Arthur? Is using familiar characters and settings "training wheels" for beginning authors or a dangerous crutch that will engrain bad habits? Where are the lines?

Forbidden Planet shows some strong similarities to Shakespeare's The Tempest and Honor Harrington's historical borrowings are easy to spot. But what if your influences and references are not as well known? How do you connect it for readers? Should you spell it out or hope someone catches your subtle references? What authors do this well?

Podcasting is the ability to assume the role of station programmer and turn your computer or mp3 player into your own private radio station. Talk radio. Hard to find indie music. Tech Tips. Audio books...but we call them Podiobooks. It can all be found in Podcasting, and it can be as big of a commitment as writing a novel itself. On this panel, experienced podcasters share their own stories with the successes and setbacks in taking your story online with audio.
