A significant number of science fiction and fantasy books are reviewed in publications such as Romance Times and nominated for awards in the romance genre. Were the genre line distinctions always artificial? What are romance readers' expectations with respect to the plot and its resolution? HEA vs. the tragic romance. Is romance handled better or worse in YA SF/F? Are certain types of romance plots (such as first love) more likely to show up in YA?

Panelists:Scott H. Andrews, Catherine Asaro, John Ashmead, Ken Liu, Fran Wilde (M)
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?
