SFContario Schedule

Hi Folks

I'll be at SFContario from Friday November 18 to Sunday November 20. Mostly I'll be staffing the Dragon Moon Press table, selling books and signing away madly. But I also managed to land on three panels this year. Here they are:

Weapons and Armour - Fri. 8 PM, Parkview
An examination fo the historical and ongoing technological race
betweeen weapons and the equipment tha tmakes them obsolete. (Erik
Buchanan, Stephen B Pearl, Adam Shaftoe(M), David Stephenson)

Are there any new stories? Sat. 4 PM, Parkview
It's been said that there's a limited number of stories - the number
varies with who's saying it - but each generation of writers seems to
come up with a few truly new ones. How can you break out of the
classic story forms and do something really new, while still being
understandable to readers? Is it even worthwhile to try? (Erik
Buchanan, Derek Kunsken, Ira Nayman(M), Craig Russell, Michael

Accents and Speech Patterns - sun 11 PM Ballroom BC
When representing accents and ways of speaking in fiction some authors
choose to add slang terms while others may write entire novels in a
vernacular accent. When is it too much? Is it worth sacrificing
readability for authenticity? Our panel will give tips, strategies and
techniques for accurately representing speech in fiction. (Richard
Baldwin, Erik Buchanan, Ian Keeling, Stephen B Pearl(M), Robert
Charles Wilson)

Looking forward to seeing folks there!
