Transcript Fri. 11-12:30 Cont. CHAIR: Marshall B. Tymn, University of Eastern Michigan. STEVE ENG, Nashville, "The Poetry of Fantasy: A Study in Research and Collection." VINCENT MIRANDA, West Palm Beach, "Fantastic Film Scholarship: A Modern Approach to Research." SARAH CLEMENS, West Palm Beach, "Fantastic Art: A Preliminary Bibliography." (No Abstracts available.) Session IX, Friday, 2 - 3:30 p. m. Author of several of the acknowledged classics in the field (The Immortals, The Listeners, The Joy Makers), Gunn is also its most prestigious academic and is his its Road to Science Fiction, four critic, volumes, is its most impressive collegiate text. His latest novel is The Dreamers (1981 retitle The Mind Masters in paperback, 1982). The story he will read is taken from Best Science Fiction of the Year, 1978 (ed. Wollheim). 3 p.m. MICHAEL P. KUBE-McDOWELL, reading "Murphy's Planet." Michael P. Kube-McDowell's offering is a new story, set in the same universe as his recent cover story in Asimov's. He's an ex-National Merit Scholar with degrees in science education from Michigan State and Indiana University, sold his first story in 1979 to Amazing, has since published in Analog, Asimov's, Twilight Zone Perpetual Light (anthology), and appears in the latest Worlds Best SF (ed.

Directed by Werner Herzog. With Klaus Kinski, Helena Rojo, Ruy Guerra, Del Negro. In the mid-1500's, a large Spanish expedition searching for the mythical lost city of El Dorado detached an advance party to explore a tributary of the Amazon; they never returned. Werner Herzog has extrapolated this obscure historical incident into Aguirre, the Wrath of God, a spectacularly horrifying chronicle of imperialism gone amok. DON'T MISS THIS FILM!!! Film: I AM MY FILMS: A PORTRAIT OF WERNER HERZOG Coral Ballroom 3:15-4:51 p.m. 1978, West Germany. Directed by Christian Weisenborn and Edwin Keusch. A closeup portrait of the man whom The New York Times called "the most unusual and the greatest of the moviemakers who have appeared in West Germany in the past decade." I Am My Films encompasses Werner Herzog's childhood, his early sense of mission and self-imposed ordeals, the genesis and making of his films, as well as illustrative clips from all his major works. AUTHORS' READINGS Sandpiper Room 2 p.m. JAMES GUNN, reading "Child of the Sun." James Gunn is Professor of English at the University of Kansas, president of Science Fiction Research Association, past president of Science Fiction Writers of America, and one of our Writers' Workshop faculty (he also runs his own science fiction workshop each summer in Kansas). 40 FANTASTIC CONTEMPORARIES: FRONT PAGERS IN MODERN FICTION Seagrape Room CHAIR: Stanley Fogel, St. Jerome's College. WALTER HERRSCHER, University of Wisconsin - Green Bay, "Robert Kennedy Saved From Drowning: Barthelme's Ironic Rescue." Donald Barthelme's "Robert Kennedy Saved from Drowning" is in the contemporary anti-mimetic mode. Eschewing many of the conventional methods of story-telling, Barthelme portrays Kennedy in a confusing and contradictory way, showing bits and pieces of the Kennedy image as it has been transmitted to us. Finally, in a bizarre climactic scene, the author "rescues" Kennedy by pulling him from the sea of trivia in which contemporary notable figures are immersed. But it is an ironic rescue which ultimately adds up to little that makes conventional sense. Kennedy remains unknown, but the reader does have a vision of meaningless contemporary existence as Barthelme and other fictionists see it. MARC THACKRAY, Dalhousie Doctorow's Rosenbergs." University, "Coover's and In The Public Burning Robert Coover deconstructs Richard Nixon and many of the other leading figures involved in the sentencing and executing of the Rosenbergs to reveal the cliched and streotyped attitudes they had towards the Rosenbergs. Coover also reveals the stereotypes into which the Rosenbergs were turned by Nixon and the others. Doctorow's Rosenbergs are less radically appropriated into fiction. Nonetheless, here too the Rosenbergs are not rendered as transparently as writers of the so-called non-fiction novel might have treated them. HELEN S. GARS0N, George Mason University, "Fantasy and Self-Destruction in Truman Capote." 24
