Saturday 5:00 Alternate History: SF or Not SF (Lilac A)
A debate over whether alternate history is science fiction or some other form of speculative fiction, and whether, in the end, it really matters?
Other Panelists: D. Cozort.
Sunday 1:00 Reading vs. Hearing (Lilac D)
Does the way you consume a book, whether reading or listening to it, change the way you perceive the story?
Other Panelists: T. Bogolub, J. Guggenheim, S. Krause and N. Litherland.
While I am looking forward to "Reading vs. Hearing", even I have to admit the main event will be my debate with Dale Cozort over whether alternate history is science fiction or not. I do plan to record the debate so if you can't come, please subscribe to my channel so you don't miss two titans of multiverse (politely) duking it out over a subject they both love. Thanks also to Steven H Silver for coming up with the idea for the panel and inviting me to attend.
