Brooke Stanley

MisCon 30 Attending Professional

Brooke H. Stanley, RN is modern day Bard.  Scrapping, skulking and schmoozing are reoccurring themes in his as yet never ending story. With Bachelor’s degrees in English and Nursing as well a fist full of apparently useless graduate work he is both over educated and very friendly.  Stanley has been burned, shot and driven for spymasters and U. S. Presidents.  In 2016,  he was named Arctic Logistics Officer for Team Monkey,  an international research organization devoted to the advancement of Anthropoid/Simian commensalism (for realsies!)  He has a lovely singing voice and likes both cats and dogs equally.

    Panelists: Kevin J Anderson, C.J. Cherryh, James Glass, Brooke Stanley

    When developing a fictional SciFi setting, there are no limits, right? Or are there? How realistic does science need to be to work in SciFi? Star Wars gets away with sound in space. Can you? What about depicting FTL drives, warp space, aliens or other tech?

    Panelists: Erik Evjen, John Goff, Brooke Stanley

    In a pack of morally off-white good guys, there's always that one player who strides unerringly to the light and can't help themselves from playing the classic hero in even the grittiest setting.

Learn what elements make every grand scheme extraordinary and how to construct the plan that will give your mastermind their edge.

    Godzilla couldnít have stood up on his own due to the effects of gravity. Itís doubtful that he could have even breathed. Scientists agree that thereís no way that a massive Decepticon can transform into something so tiny! At what point do fans finally balk at a blatant flaunting of natureís laws? How can we avoid this in our own work?
