The portal story, where the protagonist travels to another place, world, or universe, has a long history and is a mainstay in genre literature. Panelists will discuss the best and the worst tales, as well as portal stories that defy the trope yet still stays true to the sub-genre.

Panelists:Martin Berman-Gorvine, Bernie Mojzes, James R. Stratton, David Walton (M)
With Fu Manchu, Emperor Ming, Darth Vader, and the Joker, fantasy and SF are filled with villains that are redeemable and unredeemable. For the next hour, explore with authors the role of vIllains both classic and modern as well as their transition from caricature to ones that are human enough to be your next door neighbor (and just might be).
