    Join us for an informal meet & greet/hangout with a bunch of MisCon's writers and editors. This isn't a formal panel with panelists up on the stage discussing a topic. Instead, everyone will grab chairs in the pavilion, and the moderator will get things going. Then we'll open things up so small group hangouts can happen until the end of the hour. This is your chance to informally meet a bunch of the people you'll see on panels all weekend.

  • Break Fri 3:50 - Fri 5:00
  • panel Fri 5:00 - 5:50 PM, Spotlight: McPherson, Elasigue, Spotlight
    Panelists: Eva Elasigue, Danith McPherson

    Meet a few of our authors and artists, get signatures, and see what they're up to these days.

  • moderator Fri 6:00 - 6:50 PM, All About Story Extras, Dragon Pavilion (1)
    Moderator: Eva Elasigue; Panelists: Stan! Brown, Eva Elasigue, Ann Gimpel, Jeff Grubb

    Lots of books and series come with additional materials - an appendix, maps, timelines, family trees, and more. How are these made? How is this information compiled, communicated, and created for the reader, in collaboration or by the author?

  • Break Fri 6:50 - Sat 2:00
  • moderator Sat 2:00 - 2:50 PM, Consciousness Re-imagined Through SFF, Dragon Pavilion (1)
    Moderator: Eva Elasigue; Panelists: Eva Elasigue, David Gerrold, Rhiannon Held, Jim Wright (Stonekettle)

    In imaginative literature we encounter major paradigm shifts, and one basic building block we can examine through the other is Consciousness! Do aliens and androids dream? What is sentience? How would a talking animal think? How do these imagined perspectives reflect on the human mind? Philosophers welcome.

  • Break Sat 2:50 - Mon Noon
  • moderator Mon Noon - 12:50 PM, The Blended Subgenre, Monster Tent (2)
    Moderator: Eva Elasigue; Panelists: David Boop, Eva Elasigue, Deby Fredericks, Rhiannon Held, Dave Smeds

    Fantasy Sci-Fi - SF&F as BFFs. Some stories have both! Why and how? What's great, what's new, and what's here.
