Preliminary Program Grid for Andrew Fox
This is the Preliminary program schedule. Andrew Fox 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: Alternatives to the High Fantasy Epic (Ends at: 4:55 pm) Frederick|
Panelists:Andrew Fox, Kimberly G. Hargan, Michael Swanwick, Lawrence Watt-Evans (M)
The high fantasy epic involves kings, wizards, and the fate of the world, or at least kingdom. What other types of fantasy are there? What do they do differently and how does this provide a different reading experience? What about works of high fantasy that distort the formula?
|Saturday 10:00 pm: Fiction With A Laugh Track (Ends at: 10:55 pm) Bethesda|
Panelists:Brenda W. Clough, Andrew Fox (M), Larry Hodges, Alex Shvartsman
What are the tips and tricks in writing humorous SF and fantasy? What can an author do to avoid the obvious pitfalls, and spot the not-so-obvious ones? How do you maintain a reputation for writing humorous SF or fantasy, and what is the benefit of doing so?
|Sunday 10:00 am: Secretly Fantasy & SF (Ends at: 10:55 am) Bethesda|
Panelists:Marilyn "Mattie" Brahen, Andrew Fox, James Morrow (M), Sherin Nicole
Some science fiction and fantasy is published secretly in the mainstream. From the Night Circus to MaddAddam, from the Time Traveler's Wife to Atkinson's Life After Life, literary books are using sf & fantasy concepts. Why aren't these books published as genre? What do they do right and wrong? How can readers who like the fantastic find these disguised novels?
|Sunday 2:00 pm: Mass Surveillance in SF (Ends at: 2:55 pm) Bethesda|
Panelists:Kate Baker, Andrew Fox (M), Benjamin Rosenbaum
In London, cameras are omnipresent and the U.S. seems to be moving in that direction. Your cell phone and GPS track your every move and the government can access your whole online presence. How is this being reflected in SF? What can writers no longer do and what new plots emerge from the surveillance state?
