I’m looking forward to Comicpalooza 2015, in Houston over Labor Day weekend. The lineup of panels is looking great. I just got the prospective list from one of the organizers. None of this is set in stone, but if they do even half of these, it’s going to be a kick-ass con. Here’s just a handful of the potential panel topics.
For nerds, geeks, and fanboys:
- The Storytelling of Star Wars
- Harry Potter and the Future of Hogwarts
- Star Trek vs. Star Wars, It’s On
- Game of Thrones and Epic Fantasy
For aspiring writers:
- Writing Unforgettable Characters
- How to Create Believable Worlds
- What I Wish I’d Known as a New Writer
For lovers of fantasy fiction, strong female protagonists, and not-more-of-the-same-white-male-heroes-doing-everything:
- Urban Fantasy Author Roundtable
- Why We Love Urban Fantasy
- Multiculturalism in Science Fiction and Fantasy
- Gender in Fantasy Fiction
I’ll post more details here as soon as I get ‘em.
