Preliminary Draft Program Grid for Scott Edelman

This is the Preliminary Draft program schedule. Scott Edelman 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 4:00 pm: The League of Substitute Heroes and the Inferior Five (Ends at: 4:55 pm) Frederick
Panelists: Drew Bittner, Scott Edelman (M), L. Jagi Lamplighter, James Maxey
While many people are familiar with Wonder Woman, Superman, Batman, Spiderman, Iron Man, the X-Men, and the Justice League; Marvel and DC have many other second and third tier superheroes. When DC started the Vertigo line, they had some success with reviving more obscure characters in a newer, darker, often antiheroic persona. This brought them both success (Sandman) and failure (Kid Eternity anyone?). Which more obscure and or silly DC and Marvel superheroes would you like to see revived and revamped? For instance, the Head of Programming believes it's time for a revival of 'mazing man, Queen's own superhero.
Friday 9:00 pm: Ending Stories - Bang or Whimper? (Ends at: 9:55 pm) Rockville/ Potomac
Panelists: Scott Edelman, Pamela K. Kinney, Dina Leacock, Alex Shvartsman, Ian Randal Strock, Allen Wold (M)
So many short stories start out well but end abruptly or just trail off, leaving the reader to wonder, what's the point. Why does this happen and how can writers avoid this fate? How do you determine your endings? Is a twist ending a cheat?
Friday 11:00 pm: Why Do We Like Being Scared? (Ends at: 11:55 pm) Rockville/ Potomac
Panelists: Holly Black, Scott Edelman, Annette Klause, Dina Leacock (M), Jon Skovron
Fear probably developed as a survival mechanism. We fear things that might hurt us. Yet many read horror, go to slasher films, ride roller coasters, and climb cliffs. Why? What does this say about us and our psyches?
Saturday 7:30 pm: Mass Signing (Ends at: 8:25 pm) Salon A
Panelists: Danielle Ackley-McPhail, Sarah Avery, Paolo Bacigalupi, Holly Black, Marilyn "Mattie" Brahen, Neil Clarke, Tom Doyle, Andy Duncan, Scott Edelman, Jim Freund, Charles E. Gannon, Max Gladstone, David G. Hartwell, Alma Katsu, Pamela K. Kinney, Barbara Krasnoff, Dina Leacock, James Maxey, Will McIntosh, Mike McPhail, Sunny Moraine, James Morrow, Sarah Pinsker, Benjamin Rosenbaum, Lawrence M. Schoen, Darrell Schweitzer, Alex Shvartsman, Jon Skovron, Alan Smale, Bud Sparhawk, Janine Spendlove, Genevieve Valentine, Michael A. Ventrella, Lawrence Watt-Evans
