So I will be participating at San Diego longest running SF convention, Condor, this weekend. If you are in the area drop by, it is a small but fun conventions. Here are a list of pnael evets you will be able to find me taking part in.
12:00 p.m. The Internet Generation: For better or for worse, the Internet has profoundly changed our lives. Some say it’s turned us into media zombies who go into withdrawal without our social media fix. Just how addicted are we, anyway? Windsor Rose (D. Gerrold, R. M. Evans *, B. Benson)
1:00 p.m. RPGs as Fanfic: Basing a campaign on your favorite book, comic, or movie. Brittany (R.M. Evans, J. Swycaffer*, W.H. Stoddard, K. A. Murphy)
2:00 p.m. The Bromance of Star Trek. Yes, Kirk was the Captain and Spock was the First Officer, but wasn’t a lot of the series just a buddy adventure show? Brittany (J. Trimble, R. M. Evans.)
4:00 p.m. Art, Eroticism & Censorship: Implied and explicit sexual content in the visual arts. When is it a valid theme and when is it exploitation? Is there ever a justification for censorship, or for rejecting the claim that something is “art”? Clarendon (S. Dawe, L. Maudlin*, R. M. Evans.)
2:00 p.m. Workshop: Read and Critique headed by Robert Mitchell Evans Bring 1500 words of a story. Le Sommet. 2hr.
11:00 a.m. Crossing Genres: Science fiction westerns, horror romances, fantasy mysteries. Crossovers are hot these days, especially in the YA markets. What works? What doesn’t? And how do you come up with something fresh enough to sell? Clarendon (J.L. Doty*, J. Robinson, K. Thompson, R. M. Evans.)
12:00 p.m. I Don’t Want to be Eaten: Zombies, vampires and werewolves: is the trend of these stories fading or will I have to continue to sleep with garlic and carry a shotgun loaded with silver buckshot? Brittany (J. Robinson*, R. M. Evans, T. Dawson.)
2:00 p.m. Self-Publishing: Reality vs Myth- the Good, the Bad & Ugly How to succeed and avoid the traps. Clarendon (J.L. Doty*, D. Welch, R. M. Evans.)
