Panels and Discussions
The Delphic Oracle
A group of distinguished panelists are formed into the amazing, ancient Delphic Oracle through a magical Todd-inspired process. They then proceed to answer the audience's questions one person at a time, one WORD at time. Hilarity ensues.
Iron-storyteller (aka "You Said What?")
The panelists are provided with "person, place, and thing." At which point the moderator builds a story using those items and drops the next panelist into it.
Convention Pictonary with all the artists.
Art of Sam Flegal slide show presentation.
Interpreting 1000 year old Viking Poetry in Art.
Steve Antczak, co-editor of a new forthcoming anthology, discusses the melding of horror and science fiction in TV shows, movies, and fiction. What elements are required to make a story "strange fiction" (or what has also been called "New Weird fiction")?
Does Superhero Fiction Really Work without Art?
Comic book adventures obviously translate quite well into visual media such as movies and TV, but how do they fare as books or short stories? How dependent on bright color illustrations are these sagas?
Cowboys and Aliens
Writers discuss blending two or more genres, such as westerns and science fiction, or fantasy and mystery.
Nostalgia for the Future
Are you ready for a new Buck Rogers or Flash Gordon? A discussion of old-time fantasy series that should be rebooted, why reboots are big business right now, and speculation on why some soar while others crash and burn.
Religion in Science Fiction
Is their a place for Traditional Faith in the worlds of Hard Science and High Fantasy? Let's Discuss it!
Negan, Lucille, and Other Things That Made Me Stop Watching My Favorite Shows
There are a lot of great series out there these days, and it's totally impossible to watch them all. What makes us give up on one we've been following and switch over to another?
