If I Rob a Bank Seven Years Ago Today, Can You Arrest Me Tomorrow?
Friday, 02-13-2015 - 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm - Birch B
It's a paradox! How will time travel effect law and the statutes of limitations? Can you be tried for a crime you committed seven years ago in your personal timeline, but tomorrow in standard time? What other laws will be impacted by timey-wimey things?
Other panelists: Elizabeth Huffman and Patricia Sayre McCoy (M).
World War I as a Theme in SF
Sunday, 02-15-2015 - 1:30 pm to 3:00 pm - Ravinia A
2014 was the 100 year anniversary of The Great War. It has been a theme in books and comics, and we still read stories written by authors who fought in the war. How has World War I influenced the SF/F genre?
Other panelists: James Bacon, Chad Burns and Eric Flint (M).
Hmm...Eric Flint. I am sure I heard that name somewhere before. O well, it will come back to me eventually. In the meantime, you can check out the full schedule here and if you need more convincing, you can read what I thought about last year's Capricon.
