Preliminary Program Grid for Alan Loewen
This is the Preliminary program schedule. Alan Loewen 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.

Panelists:Carolyn Ives Gilman, Alan Loewen (M), Will McIntosh, Christie Meierz
Not all antagonists are villains. What is the difference? Why would authors use a non-villain antagonist? Who are some of the best non-villain antagonists in SF?

Panelists:Alan Loewen (M), C.S. MacCath, Michael A. Ventrella
What are the motivations for having otherwise-heroic people do villainous things in fiction? How can an author strike a balance between making an evildoer's actions believable and somewhat sympathetic without turning them into an antihero?

Panelists:Alan Loewen, Shahid Mahmud (M), Sunny Moraine, Gordon Van Gelder
In an age where virtually everyone carries Internet and ebook-capable smartphones why aren't more reading short stories while waiting on lines, during commercials etc.?
