Preliminary Program Grid for Roger MacBride Allen
This is the Preliminary program schedule. Roger MacBride Allen 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 6:00 pm: The Logistics of Space Warfare (Ends at: 6:55 pm) Salon A|
Panelists:Roger MacBride Allen, Thomas McCabe (M), Ian Randal Strock
"Amateurs study strategy, professionals study logistics." What sort of support structure is likely to be needed for warfare in space? How can this be used to build an interesting story, rather than just boring the reader with detail or setting up a situation where all the outcomes are trivial?
|Saturday 11:00 am: Movie Adaptations of Books (Ends at: 11:55 am) Salon A|
Panelists:Roger MacBride Allen, Will McIntosh, Sherin Nicole, Elaine Stiles (M)
Don't judge a book by its movie. Why does Hollywood turn great books into messes? What adaptions work and don't work and why? Who is to blame? How can fans and writers get better adaptations?
|Saturday 3:00 pm: Small Press Vs. Self-Publishing (Ends at: 3:55 pm) Rockville/ Potomac|
Panelists:Roger MacBride Allen, Martin Berman-Gorvine, Scott Edelman (M), Ian Randal Strock
What are the advantages and disadvantages of small press compared to self-publishing? Why did you choose one over the other? How will the rise of both affect the creation and distribution of books?
|Saturday 4:00 pm: Living In The Future (Ends at: 4:55 pm) Salon A|
Panelists:Roger MacBride Allen, James Morrow (M), Sherin Nicole, Gary L. Oleson
Welcome Marty McFly to 2015. In Back to the Future II, Marty takes the DeLorean to October 21, 2015, that's less than 2 weeks away. We are living in the past's future. What did they get right/wrong? What about other vehicles that traveled into their future/our past?
