cropped-RavenCon2016This weekend is Ravencon! I’ll be back at the con as a guest again this year, although the con itself will be in a new site at the DoubleTree in Williamsburg Virginia. I hope you’ll be able to go to Ravencon, and if you do go, here is where you can find me.

Friday

4 PM: READING: DOC COLEMAN Room J – 50 minutes

6 PM: WHEN ROBOTS DO EVERYTHING, WHAT WILL PEOPLE DO? Room F – 50 minutes

This is one of the oldest questions in SF, but it’s starting to stare us in the face. Will the market take care of everything? Or will governments need to do something to keep things from getting really, really ugly? Panelists: J.T. Bock, Doc Coleman, Meriah L. Crawford, D.J. McGuire (M)

10 PM: TIME TRAVEL: ESSENTIAL BOOKS AND STORIES Room E – 50 minutes

What are the touchstone tales of going back and forth in time? Panelists: Lou Antonelli, Doc Coleman (M), Richard Groller, Larry Hodges, Joan Wendland

Saturday

10 AM: SELF-PUBLISHING DOESN’T MEAN SOLO PUBLISHING Room E – 50 minutes

Just because a book is self-published doesn’t mean that the author hasn’t had help. From editing to cover art to book design to marketing, self-published authors often look for assistance, especially when they recognize their own weaknesses. Panelists: Doc Coleman, GB MacRae, Alex Matsuo, Christine McDonnell (M)

3 PM: WHAT MAKES A GOOD COMPANION? Room G – 50 minutes

The who and what of traveling with The Doctor. Join other Doctor Who fans to discuss what makes a great companion onscreen and offscreen. What kind of person do we enjoy traveling with The Doctor? Let’s discuss the who’s who (no pun intended) of our favorite and least-favorite companions. Panelists: Doc Coleman, Jenny Hendricks, Nicki Lynch, Angela Pritchett (M), Susan Zee

5 PM: PODCASTING Room G – 50 minutes

What goes into the making of a successful podcast? How do the podcasters figure out the tone of their show from the technical to artistic details? How do you make it stand out from the rest? Panelists: Doc Coleman, Alex Matsuo (M), Saucy, Amy H. Sturgis
