Event session

Podcasting for Noobs. What goes into making a weekly podcast? What equipment should the beginner consider? Other costs? Kitchen table or converted closet sound booth? Do's and Don'ts of podcasting for noobs.

Some of the great SF and Fantasy stories have their origins in myth, legend, and folklore. How have these tales grown from Yddgrasil's roots and transformed into what we could call the mythology of today?

EscapePod is one of the finalists for the Hugo for semi-prozine. They join forces with their sibling magazines to present short fiction. Come hear some of the voices of Escape Artists read.

I'll be signing next to some fairly recognizable names and some less well known (yet). Even if you don't have a book for me to sign (though they'll be available in the dealers room), come on by to say hello. As usual, I'll have some chapbooks to give away for those who don't already have them.

Categories and identity labels for gender have expanded dramatically in recent years. This panel will discuss gender identity vs. gender presentation, and untangle the range of identities across the gender spectrum: trans, genderqueer, genderfluid, agender, bigender, butch, femme, and others.

(Note: I originally posted this with an oudated, longer list of participants. I assume there were scheduling asjustments for the participants who are no longer listed. And I certainly hope additional participants will be added for the actual panel!)

Which creators are introducing new and wonderful LGBTQ characters? Who are your old favorites? All ages are welcome at this exploration of queerfolk in genre media and fandom.

Even if your ideas are original, unusual or outright weird, you need to have a base in reality for form.

What did it look like when our ancestors created and wore costumes?

People always ask, "Where do your ideas come from?" Sometimes they do it because they want to find some of their own.

In works like Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, Thomas M. Disch's Camp Concentration, and Michael Swanwick's Jack Faust, we see modern reflections of the old Faust myth -- a tale that has a lot of resonance for SF and F, where knowledge is generally considered a virtue, or a noble goal, rather than something to be pursued only with great care. What other examples of the Faust myth do we have in the SFnal world, and how does our treatment of it over time change, and what does that tell us about who we are, and who we want to be?
