I'm doing a con in San Diego next week. ConDor has a heavy focus on the science part of science fiction, which is what I like. Here's the schedule:
A Blender Full of Tropes: Media for a self referential, mashup generation - Samantha Henderson, Elwin Cotman, Chris Farnsworth, Allison Lonsdale, Cody Goodfellow
From Elfland to Poughkeepsie: Fantasy should sound like fantasy - Elwin Cotman, Scott Norton, Eric Shanower, Lynn Maudlin, Michael Underwood
The City As A High Fantasy Location - Sherwood Smith, Sheila Finch, Dave Duncan, Scott Norton, Elwin Cotman
A nice note to end on. The organizers of ConDor are cool, considerate people, too. I don't know much about science, but I have a lot to say about the topics I'm doing panels on. And remember: FANTASY SHOULD SOUND LIKE FANTASY!
