TOF is "special guest" at Lunacon this weekend. If you're near the RyeTown Hilton, here is his schedule AFAIK
- Fri 4:00 PM Character Building Bartell Your clever plot twist or interesting theme will mean nothing if readers don't care about your characters. The panelists will discuss techniques to use to make sure your characters are memorable and that the story is about them.
- Fri 10:00 PM Rules! Rules????? There are no Rules! William Odelle When writing fiction, if it works, it works. Our panel debates whether authors need to know "rules" that they can then break if they are good enough, or if this only constrains creativity.
- Sat 11:30 AM Reading: Michael Flynn Elijah Budd
- Sat 2:00 PM Alternate History That Isn't About War William Odelle Can't we imagine alternate history about something other than the outcomes of battles. Think of how history might have changed if certain IDEAS had formed differently or come at different times.
- Sat 3:00 PM Magic and Religion Westchester Ballroom A2 How do Magic and Religion intertwine?
- Sat 4:00 PM Autographing: Michael Flynn Westchester Assembly
- Sun 1:00 PM The Great Ptolemaic Smackdown Westchester Ballroom B How the heliocentric world replaced the geocentric one against all evidence and common sense.
