Preliminary Program Grid for Tom Doyle

This is the Preliminary program schedule. Tom Doyle 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: American Classics of the Fantastic (Ends at: 4:55 pm) Bethesda
Panelists:Michael Dirda, Tom Doyle, Charles E. Gannon, Darrell Schweitzer (M)
Many of America's classic writers also wrote on the fantastic. Poe invented the modern horror story. Hawthorne wrote of mad scientists and supernatural forces. What classics contain genre elements?

What are some of the creative ways writers use language and linguistics in their fictions? How can language be used as a weapon or to unite different peoples? How can writers portray linguistic differences in a way that is not condescending?

People keep pushing back the date for the singularity. What is the singularity and why is the date always changing? What is a realistic timetable? What sf deals with it the most?
