Preliminary Program Grid for Elektra Hammond

This is the Preliminary program schedule. Elektra Hammond 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 7:00 pm: Son of Steampunk (Ends at: 7:55 pm) Bethesda
Panelists:Elektra Hammond (M), Elaine Stiles, Joan Wendland
Steampunk genre caught on in ways nobody expected, spawning offspring genres (Dieselpunk, Atompunk, Clockpunk, etc.) achieve the same popularity? The panel will discuss these new subgenres, what defines them, and their staying power.
Saturday 10:00 am: The Martian and the Robinsonade (Ends at: 10:55 am) Rockville/ Potomac
Panelists:Michael Capobianco, Elektra Hammond, James Morrow, Michael D. Pederson (M)
What's so intriguing and enduring about being stranded and alone? The panelists will discuss if there is room left in the reading market for variations on this theme.

Panelists:Martin Berman-Gorvine (M), Elektra Hammond, Victoria Janssen, Sarah Pinsker
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.
Sunday 12:00 pm: Cats in Fantasy & Science Fiction (Ends at: 12:55 pm) Rockville/ Potomac
Panelists:Elektra Hammond (M), Kelly A. Harmon, Alex Shvartsman, Michelle D. Sonnier
