Preliminary Program Grid for Charles E. Gannon

This is the Preliminary program schedule. Charles E. Gannon 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 3:00 pm: Worldbuilding in Science Fiction vs. Fantasy (Ends at: 3:55 pm) Rockville/ Potomac
Panelists:Charles E. Gannon, Jean Marie Ward (M), Lawrence Watt-Evans, Allen L. Wold (M)
Are there distinctions in how worldbuilding is approached for a fantasy setting rather than a science fiction setting? Are there different approaches in how the result is presented to the reader? Are there challenges on one side of the fantasy/SF split that are less of an issue on the other?

Panelists:Jeanne Adams (M), Charles E. Gannon, Lezli Robyn
Just as there are many, many subgenres of fantasy, there are also many subgenres of science fiction. E.g. first contact novels, space opera, military sf, dystopias, etc. what are the current trends and pluses and minuses of various SF subgenres?
