How things work in your science fiction and fantasy. For instance, if you are going to have flight in your fantasy novel, how is it going to work, e.g. how are the wings going to be load bearing and catch air currents. In your science fiction novel, have you given much thought to how your characters will interface with their supercomputer or mecha-suit?
|Sunday 10:00 am: How We Imagine The Future and What It Says About Us (Ends at: 10:55 am) Bethesda|
Panelists:Malka Older, Bud Sparhawk (M), K.M. Szpara, Fran Wilde
It's always fun to look at what sci-fi visionaries of the past thought the future would be like, what they got right (and what they didn't). But why did they imagine it the way they did? How was it affected by the world they lived in? Given the times in which we live, what sort of future should we be imagining?
