Capclave 2013 Schedule

I’ll be attending CapClave this weekend, having chosen it over the NY Comic Con.  I’ll be missing NYCC for yet another year, but given CapClave’s focus on short fiction, choosing to drive 4+ hours to attend it instead of a 45 minute subway ride to ComicCon makes a lot of sense to me.

My current CapClave schedule is as follows:


Friday 4:00 pm: Editors’ Pet Peeves (Ends at: 4:55 pm)
Panelists: Mike McPhail, Norm Sherman (M), Alex Shvartsman, Hildy Silverman
The next great story has been sent to the editor. But the author did this…
Friday 5:00 pm: Author’s Table Friday 5 (Ends at: 5:55 pm)
Panelists: Alex Shvartsman
Friday 9:00 pm: Reading: Alex Shvartsman (Ends at: 9:25 pm)
Panelists: Alex Shvartsman
Saturday 9:00 am: Short Fiction Sources (Ends at: 9:55 am)
Panelists: Neil Clarke, Mike McPhail (M), Alex Shvartsman, Sean Wallace
Aside from the not so big anymore three magazines, where do you go for short fiction? What online sources have the best stories?
Saturday 4:00 pm: The Worlds of Clifford Simak (Ends at: 4:55 pm)
Panelists: Jamie Todd Rubin (M), Darrell Schweitzer, Alex Shvartsman, Michael Swanwick
50 years ago Simak won a Hugo for Way Station. He also wrote City and the Hugo and Nebula winning “Grotto of the Dancing Deer.” Yet today, few younger fans have read his work which is available only in the small press and “public domain” compilations. What happened? What makes his stories so timeless? What do you think is his best work and how can it be revived for today’s audiences?
Sunday 9:00 am: Jesus Saves, So Should Writers. Ctrl-S (Ends at: 9:55 am)
Panelists: Judi Fleming, Rahul Kanakia (M), Dina Leacock, Alex Shvartsman, Bud Sparhawk
Practical tips for writers – How do you keep track of different versions and edits? How often do you back up? How do you track where a story has already been submitted? And what do you use for outlining/note taking?

There are occasionally last minute changes and additions. You can click on this link to see the most up-to-date list of panels I’ll be participating on at the con.
