Transcript of his fantasy trilogy (Ironbrand, Graymantle, Kingsbane) is scheduled for June publication. Meanwhile he's completing a science fiction novel on the conflict of religion and politics in the future, The Mansions of Space. Morressy publishes regularly in Fantasy & Science Fiction where his Kedrigern stories are popular, and also appears in Omni, Asimov's and Playboy. He is best known among science fiction fans for his novel Frostworld and Dreamfire. 12 Noon JUSTIN LEIBER, reading "Ryoangi," Beyond Humanity. an excerpt from The son of Fritz Le at the University topics include "the and psychology, communications." His Noam Chomsky: iber, Justin teaches philosophy of Houston where his course mind/body problem, linguistics and extraterrestrial academic publications include A Philosophic Overview, Structuralism, and "Paradigmatic Immor CUNY, Oxford, and second novel. papers with titles like ality." He has also taught at MIT. Beyond Humanity is his 1 p.m. CHARLES N. BROWN, editor and publisher of LOCUS, speaking to an open session of the Writers Workshop, "Science Fiction and the Publishing Market." Charlie Brown has edited LOCUS: The Newspaper of the Science Fiction Field, for the past 15 years, garnering six Hugo awards for his publication and several nominations for himself as "best fan writer." He was an electrical engineer before his hobby became a fulltime job. His review columns have appeared in Cosmos, Odyssey, and Asimov's. 57 KURT VONNEGUT AND FANTASY Seagrape Room CHAIR: Joseph Sigman, McMaster University, Ontario. LAWRENCE BROER, University of South Florida, Tampa, "Through the Looking Glass at The Sirens of Titan: Vonnegut in Wonderland." The paper will analyze the subtly interwoven allusions to Charles Dodgson's two "Alice" books in Kurt Vonnegut's novel, The Sirens of Titan. Vonnegut refers to Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass directly on several occasions in his novel but also reinforces his main theme through numerous references to glass, portholes, windows, mirrors, and crystals, tranparency, and to doors, caves, and tunnels. Vonnegut uses glass reflections to suggest that the nightmarish experiences of the novel occur within the tormented mind of Malachi Constant rather than in objective reality. PETER F. FARSHALL, Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology, Terra Haute, "Fantasy and Irony in Kurt Vonnegut's Slaughterhouse Five." Although Billy Pilgrim is probably fantasizing his visit to Tralfamadore, he cannot escape his past experiences through that fantasy. Ironic patterns link the Tralfamadore espisode with Germany. The Tralfamadorians are an exaggerated representation of the most sterile and destructive aspects of mankind. In this novel, Vonnegut espouses not the Tralfamadorian philosophy but rather a commitment to true humanity. JOSEPH SIGMAN, McMaster University, "Kurt Vonnegut' Sirens of Titan as 'an Exercise in Science and Theology*." Kurt Vonnegut once told an interviewer that "all writers are going to have to learn more about science." This paper explores the way in which Vonnegut contrasts the world of modern physics with the world of traditional theology in The Sirens of Titan. It focuses on his use of the chrono-synclastic infundibulum to oppose Einstein's theory of relativity to the theological concept of eternity. It also discusses the metaphorical parallels between quantum theory and Vonnegut's manipulation of point-of-view and plot. 58 / SEXUALITY & FANTASY II: ICONOGRAPHIC APPROACHES Allamanda Room CHAIR: Donald Palumbo, Northern Michigan University. RICHARD ABRAMS, University of Southern Maine, "Illicit Pleasures: Dante Among the Sensualists." Almost all of our modern analysis of sexuality derives from Freud, but Dante offers an analysis of sexuality in Purg. XXVI that provides a footing outside Freudian thought and contributes a different set of images, e.g., an association of sexual pleasure with the fascination of cities or with the world of the page (as opposed to the spoken word). PAUL GROOTKERK, Mississippi State University, "Hans Baldung-Grun's Bewitched Groom: A Probe into the Erotic Nature of the Witches' Sabbat." One of the major themes of 15th century art was the portrayal of the tortures of the damned, and Germanic art displayed the strongest penchant for this concern with the macabre. Among the most odious representations of this world of the Devil, witches, and demons are those created by Hans Baldung-Grun, who also did numerous sensual studies of the confrontation of death and the living soul. While one theory argues that Baldung's The Bewitched Groom displays the artist's concern with his own imminent death, iconographic study and comparison with contemporaneous works suggest that the woodcut is actually a symbolical print representing the erotic nature of the medieval witches' Sabbat. Slides will illustrate the presentation. GWENDOLYN LAYNE, Vanderbilt University, "Subliminal Seduction: Fantasy Cover Art." Much of fantasy's appeal and popularity come from its sublimation of sex. It is a "safe" escape, while at the same time it provides a titillating experience. An example is the cover art of such illustrators as Frazetta, Boris, and Whelan, which 33
