NOVELS, NOVELLAS, AND SHORT STORIES
2 Jul 2022, Saturday 16:00 - 17:30, Synergy 4 (San Mateo Marriott)
What are the strengths of each form? The weaknesses? Do people like
novels, novellas, or short stories that are part of a series? What about a
mix of different lengths in the same universe? What's best for reading
these days? Shorter works on your phone, tablet, or ebook reader? Longer
works? Microfiction/flash fiction? Settling into an armchair with a nice,
comfy printed book? Are cats in laps necessary? If so, what length fiction
do they work best with?
Panelists: Steven Barnes, Cliff Winnig, Isadora Petrovsky, Fred Wiehe
THE "ART" OF BACKSTORY
2 Jul 2022, Saturday 17:30 - 19:00, Synergy 1 (San Mateo Marriott)
Panelists will accept suggestions from the audience and craft backstories
on the fly, either as a group or taking turns. These will be quick, but
telling, elements that demonstrate the value of backstory while offering a
chuckle. Bring your best one-sentence character descriptions and see what
the skilled hands of the panelists can do.
Panelists: Fred Wiehe, Margaret McGaffey Fisk (TTO Publishing), Colin Fisk
WHEN REALITY IS HORRIFYING
4 Jul 2022, Monday 10:00 - 11:30, Synergy 1 (San Mateo Marriott)
Have the horrors of a pandemic turned us off to fictional horror or do we
need fiction more than ever? Join us for an interactive panel-audience
discussion about those times when reality is a little too close to the
monsters under our beds.
Panelists: Steven Barnes, Fred Wiehe, Taunya Gren (5Rainbow Productions)
