Transcript THE PANELS Panels are the meat and potatoes programming for any convention of readers of science fiction and fantasy. The solid response of the science fiction writing community has enabled us to put together a long and varied list of panels for your enjoyment. Over sixty professional writers, along with a leavening of artists, poets, scientists and others with appropriate expertise, will participate in the panels described below. We have tried to address a broad cross-section of interests related to science fiction and fantasy—there should be something for almost any taste! Come to listen, learn, and sometimes laugh. See your favorite authors in the flesh and get to know new ones. Enjoy! To find out which authors will participate in which panels, and when and where those panels will take place, consult your insert convention schedule. Biographical sketches of authors and guests appearing at the convention are presented in the Who's Who in this program book. —Diana L. Paxson Panel Coordinator Alien Ecologies — What are the requirements for viable ecosystems and their accompanying life-forms on other worlds? The Artists' Round Robin — SF and fantasy artists discuss technique, markets, art shows and other aspects of art. Beyond the Bicameral Brain — Left and right brain or front and back? What does the structure of the hardware have to do with thinking? The Brave Little Tailor: Costume Engineering — Masquerade winners and professional costumers discuss the design, construction, and presentation of SF and fantasy clothing and costumes. The Cauldron of Fantasy — Traditional and non-traditional sources of mythic and cultural material in fantasy. Celtic Twilight or Celtic Dawn? — Sources and uses of Celtic myth in modern SF and fantasy. Chariots of Fire: How to Keep Sane While Running a Convention — A discussion by past and present convention committee veterans. Comparative Thaumaturgy — A discussion of the similarities and differences between systems and techniques of magic from a variety of cultures. The Computer Who Loved Me — So many writers want to discuss their experiences with word processing and computers that we decided to make this one a free for all, that is, a round robin on the pros and cons of writing with a computer. Consciousness: The Endless Frontier — What is consciousness? Does it have to be organic? What would an artificial intelligence or an alien consciousness be like? Critical Mss — Is literary criticism necessary, or just an evil? A discussion of the difficulties, dangers, and benefits of SF and fantasy criticism. Designing Alien Beings — A look at alien critters from the scientist's, the writer's and the artist's points of view. IT'S ABOUT TIME 51
