ConDFW Schedule of Doooooom!

Hooray--the ConDFW programming is up, and my schedule is finalized! If you are planning on showing up, this is where you can find me (and heckle me, or throw tomatoes at me, or cheer wildly).


Panel Room 1 -- Warwick
3:00 p.m. -- Short Stuff: Short Fiction and its Market
Panelists: T.M. Hunter, Teresa Patterson, Richard Weber (M), Michelle Muenzler, Kevin Hosey, K.B. Bogen
So you're not quite ready to write that novel? Have a notebook filled with short stories or even just thoughts? Hear our panelists discuss how to take those ideas, turn them into real short stories, what to do with them then, and where they can go.


Panel Room 4 -- Churchill
11:00 a.m. -- Run! These Aren't Your Parent's Shambling Zombies
Panelists: Chris Donahue, Linda Donahue (M), Christopher Fulbright, Angeline Hawkes, Brad Sinor, Michelle Muenzler
Zombies may never sparkle and be angst-ridden, but nowadays they can run, jump, and do almost anything but fly. Is this the modern reinvention of the Zombie? If so, what explains the popularity of the comic/TV show “Walking Dead” and do modern audiences need to know what causes zombies? Is saying that magic or comets created them good enough anymore? Lastly, hear what our panelists want in a good apocalypse.

Panel Room 2 -- Manchester
9:00 p.m. -- Pornography vs. Erotica
Panelists: Lee Martindale, Brad Sinor (M), Michelle Muenzler
Nine different panels so far, and nothing has been solved. This no holds, gloves off, penetrative examination of adult literature is a tradition at ConDFW. What is erotica? What is the difference between erotica and pornography? These are a couple of the questions that may actually be asked this year. Last year, the panelists actually stayed somewhat topical! Perhaps this year it will be solved forever? We're never sure, but it is always entertaining. Adults only!


Panel Room 4 -- Churchill
1:00 p.m. -- Publishing 201: Publishing Novels
Panelists: Bill Fawcett (M), Taylor Anderson, Tim Powers, Paul Black, Michelle Muenzler
Putting together a novel is an exhausting business, but getting it out into the cold, cruel world is the next big step. Our experts talk about how to get your novel read, who to go to, and what to say. And watch out for rogue contracts!

Panel Room 4 -- Churchill
2:00 p.m. -- Mythological Sources: Assyrian and Babylonian Mythology
Panelists: Linda Donahue (M), Michelle Muenzler, Christopher Fulbright, Richard Weber
Some of the oldest mythological creatures are not Norse, or Greek, They are much older from Babylonian times. Borrowed freely, these creatures and gods had just as many quirks as the Greeks, and best of all, H.P. Lovecraft was inspired by them in some of his dark stories. Hopefully, these tales will inspire you to great heights as well!

We don't have any panels together, but we should meet up and go out to eat.

Agreed! Hanging out at some point is mandatory. :)
