Semi-Final Program Grid for Darrell Schweitzer
This is the Semi-Final program schedule. Darrell Schweitzer 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 9:00 pm: J. K. Rowling Wrote an Adult Mystery (Ends at: 9:55 pm)|
Panelists: Catherine Asaro, Scott Edelman, Betsy A. Riley, Darrell Schweitzer (M), Jon Skovron
Why do authors switch genres or markets and how does it affect their career? Do they need a different pen name for each new genre? Is it better to focus on getting good at writing one genre or experiment? What are the reasons authors write outside the areas for which they are best known?
|Friday 10:00 pm: Keith Roberts (Ends at: 10:55 pm)|
Panelists: Gardner Dozois, David G. Hartwell, Darrell Schweitzer (M), Michael Walsh
Remembering the author of Pavanne.
|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 4:00 pm: The Worlds of Clifford Simak (Ends at: 4:55 pm)|
Panelists: Jamie Todd Rubin (M), Darrell Schweitzer, Alex Shvartsman, Michael Swanwick
50 years ago Simak won a Hugo for Way Station. He also wrote City and the Hugo and Nebula winning "Grotto of the Dancing Deer." Yet today, few younger fans have read his work which is available only in the small press and "public domain" compilations. What happened? What makes his stories so timeless? What do you think is his best work and how can it be revived for today's audiences?
