Preliminary Program Grid for Marilyn "Mattie" Brahen
This is the Preliminary program schedule. Marilyn "Mattie" Brahen 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 5:00 pm: Where Are The Happy Futures? (Ends at: 5:55 pm) Rockville/ Potomac|
Panelists:Marilyn "Mattie" Brahen, James Maxey (M), Christie Meierz, Sunny Moraine
Doom and gloom and dark despair; people dying everywhere. Even the Man of Steel has gone grim and gritty. Why is everything so negative these days? Fantasy readers want GRRM to kill off more and more characters and YA books have dystopias and government conspiracies. Where are the happy futures? Is it that readers don't trust that the future will be better? Why or why not?
|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?
