Preliminary Program Grid for Victoria Janssen
This is the Preliminary program schedule. Victoria Janssen 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.
|Saturday 12:00 pm: Urban Fantasy & Paranormal Romance (Ends at: 12:55 pm) Salon A|
Panelists:Victoria Janssen, Alma Katsu, Dina Leacock (M), Sherin Nicole
Much, if not most, of urban fantasy are either mysteries with magic, romance with a paranormal, or combination of the two. Has paranormal romance completely taken over the urban fantasy subgenre? What effects has the rise of paranormal romance had on the fantasy field? Is this limiting the field? Is the subgenre in danger of becoming a self-parody? What authors and works should people be reading?
|Saturday 1:00 pm: Food In Fiction (Ends at: 1:55 pm) Bethesda|
Panelists:Ann Chatham, Brenda W. Clough, Victoria Janssen (M)
Even heroes and dragons have to eat. The food in a work of fiction can be a crucial part of the setting. And sometimes the fictional food enters the real world as in A Feast of Ice and Fire. What authors do the best job with food and what do they do that's effective? How do you write about food?
|Sunday 10:00 am: The Appeal of Doctor Who (Ends at: 10:55 am) Rockville/ Potomac|
Panelists:Cathy Green (M), Victoria Janssen, Alastair Reynolds, Hildy Silverman
Doctor Who has lasted over 50 years and 12 Doctors. Why has this series lasted so long? Why has the revival done so well in the US compared to the original? What are the differences between old and new Who? Has it jumped the shark?
