Preliminary Program Grid for Alan Smale

This is the Preliminary program schedule. Alan Smale 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: War in Space (Ends at: 5:55 pm) Rockville/ Potomac
Panelists:Jack Campbell - John G. Hemry, Alan Smale (M), Hugh Taylor, Christopher Weuve
Space battles, rarely realistic in movies or TV, can be presented in detail in a book. Panelists will describe how they see war in space.

Panelists:Martin Berman-Gorvine, Emmie Mears (M), Alan Smale, Michael A. Ventrella
Many novels these days change history slightly -- and fail. What does it take to make a good alternate history plot?
Saturday 12:00 pm: Putting Real Science in Science Fiction (Ends at: 12:55 pm) Salon A
Panelists:Michael Capobianco, Alan Smale, Bud Sparhawk (M), Ian Randal Strock
With the recent popularity of books like The Martian where real science is front and center, what are some of the common errors and plausible speculations? And how do you write real science and still make the work a compelling read?
