Description of Program
Some science fiction classics are so steeped in the time they were written, they are painful to read now. In some ways, getting the technology wrong is secondary to getting the sociology wrong, as when sexism and racism rear their now-ugly heads. What classic novels show their age but are still a pleasure to read, and which make us wince?

|Saturday 1:00 pm: Literary Inspirations (Ends at: 1:55 pm) Bethesda|

What author's works have influenced, inspired and even just amused the panelists.

The panel will discuss both writing and promotional mistakes: How writers have screwed themselves over and killed their chances of making it in the publishing world by doing easily preventable things.
