Semi-Final Program Grid for Kathryn Morrow
This is the Semi-Final program schedule. Kathryn Morrow 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.

Panelists: Marilyn "Mattie" Brahen, Larry Hodges (M), John Edward Lawson, Kathryn Morrow

Dark fantasy, Urban fantasy, and Tolkien fantasy are just a few examples of modern genre writing. Trends and tastes change over time. A Song of Ice and Fire brought gritty fantasy to the forefront. Is the reading public ready to move on? And to what?

Panelists: Victoria Janssen (M), Marianne Mancusi, Kathryn Morrow
Romance is hot. It sells. How does romance fit into Science Fiction? Or does it? Can the elements of a classic romance work in SF/fantasy? How do writers balance the two elements? Is Science Fiction romance an oxymoron?
