PhilCon 2013

I'm going to PhilCon this coming weekend, and here's my schedule as of 10/31/13:

Fri 11:00 PM in Crystal Ballroom Three (1 hour)
"THEY SAID WHAT ABOUT MY BOOK!?"  MISLEADING OR EMBARRASSING  BLURBS

    [Panelists: Stephanie Burke (mod), D.L. Carter, Christie Meierz]

    Authors describe irritating, frustrating, or humorous blurbs that
    distorted what the book was about, gave away the ending or otherwise
    wreaked havoc with the book (or, at least, the reader's first
    impression)


Sat 11:00 AM in Plaza IV (Four) (1 hour)
THEY AREN'T OUT THERE AFTER ALL 

    [Panelists: Nathan Lilly (mod), Earl Bennett, John Monahan, Peter
    Prellwitz, Christie Meierz]

    In recent decades more and more space opera has shied away from
    featuring sentient aliens, populating their worlds with factions of
    humanity instead.  Perhaps this reflects a growing pessimism over
    our own attempts to find  life out there.  How does the paucity of
    aliens affect space opera


Sun 10:00 AM in Crystal Ballroom Three (1 hour)
WEARING PURPLE: FEMALE WRITERS OF A CERTAIN AGE 

    [Panelists: Oz Drummond (mod), Brenda W. Clough, Barbara Krasnoff,
    Dina Leacock, Christie Meierz]

    A look at the process of aging as a Female Speculative Fiction
    author. Is it a concern? At what point do you cough when mentioning
    the date of your first sale? Do you find writing love scenes after
    menopause a bit dull? Or does it help liven things up


Sun 2:00 PM in Plaza II (Two) (1 hour)
THE FUTURE OF PRIVACY 

    [Panelists: Michael A. Ventrella (mod), Ellen Asher, Christie
    Meierz]

    Will the modern concept of privacy be considered anachronistic in
    the future?  And if not, what will "privacy" mean
