Wiscon Schedule 2012
Five Tales of Longing, Constraint, and general Creepiness. Safe as houses? Think again.
Christopher Barzak, M Rickert, Benjamin Rosenbaum, Sofia Samatar, David J. Schwartz
A repeat of "Imaginary Book Club" from last year's WisCon. Each panelist presents a review of an imaginary book, and other panelists discuss the books and their merits. Possible books to review: Connie Willis's foray into noir steampunk, "Beyond Lies the Dubstep" by Philip K. Dick, and Le Guin's new translation of Borges.
Alyc Helms, Saira Ali, Julia Rios, Benjamin Rosenbaum, Jane A Thompson
Whether it's for movies, TV, literature, or games of all kinds, creative people in SF&F have to build their worlds from scratch. Let's see how they do it. We'll start with some categories (tech level, economic system, climate, races, etc.), get ideas about each of them from the audience, select the best ideas in each category, then watch the panelists writhe as they figure out how to make them work together.
Benjamin Rosenbaum, Vylar Kaftan, Rachel Kronick, Victoria Lopez, Carol Townsend
