My PhilCon 2014 Schedule

I’m PhilCon-bound this weekend and here’s my event schedule:

Fri 7:00 PM in Plaza III (Three) (1 hour)
SETTING UP A CROWDFUNDING PROJECT (1826)

[Panelists: Danielle Ackley-McPhail (mod), Rob Balder, Neil Clarke, Gil Cnaan, Alex Shvartsman, Alyce Wilson]

Panelists discuss what worked, what didn’t and why. How can you  promote one to make sure it is a success

Fri 8:00 PM in Crystal Ballroom Two (1 hour)
DEFYING THE SQUARE CUBE LAW (1796)

[Panelists: Alex Shvartsman (mod), Bob Eggleton, Lawrence Kramer, James Prego]

Consider really huge monsters. Sure we like ’em big and capable of stomping cities, but is there any way to make a Godzilla or Chthulhu plausible

Sat 10:00 AM in Autograph Table (1 hour)

DOES SCIENCE FICTION NEED TO LIGHTEN UP? (1771)

[Panelists: Alex Shvartsman (mod), Brian Thomas, Berakha Lana Guggenheim, Steve Miller, Robert C Roman, Lee Gilliland]

Has the genre become too serious and pretentious in recent years? Do too many writers feel they are philosophers and teachers?

[Panelists: April Grey (mod), Alex Shvartsman]

ELLO FACEBOOK, GET OUT OF MYSPACE. (1728)

[Panelists: Rock Robertson (mod), Gil Cnaan, Muriel Hykes, Suzanne Rosin, Alex Shvartsman]

Well, here we go again. Another social network rears its ugly head and everyone contemplates jumping ship. Discuss as former GEnie members nod wisely.

Sat 10:00 PM in Crystal Ballroom Two (1 hour)
FUNNY HORROR STORIES (1769)

[Panelists: Brian Koscienski (mod), Darrell Schweitzer, Alex Shvartsman, Robert Corry, Brian Thomas, April Grey]

There is a fine line between horror and humor.  How do the successful examples of this work
