Wiscon: The View from Friday Morning
I keep remembering all these people I chatted with, who I forgot to mention in last night's post. For example, I met
I ended up falling asleep with my lights on and all my clothing still on immediately after blogging last night, so I was a bit rushed this morning.
My Wiscon Schedule for Friday, with a few blank spots
8:00am - ????pm ♦ The Capitol!
Special ♦ Friday, 1:00–4:00 P.M. ♦ Wisconsin & Capitol Ballrooms
Particular things I would like to check out at The Gathering:
2 Nordic Trek
Reading,Viewing, & Critiquing Science Fiction and Fantasy ♦ Friday, 2:30-3:45 P.M. ♦ Senate B
The long journey across the Gethen Glacier in Left Hand of Darkness. The Svalbard of Iorek Byrnison in The Golden Compass. Even the Alaskan village of 30 Days of Night. The frozen north holds allure for more than Green Bay Packer fans. Whence cometh this fascination? Panel may include dramatic readings; the highly imaginative (or suggestible) should bring sweaters.
M: Adrian Simmons, Evelyn Browne, Maureen Cohen, Lori Devoti
Undecided for the 4:00-5:15pm slot. I'm not wild about any of these panels, so I might just chill. Also might grab a bus, return home, and come back to the Con with my car so that I don't have to worry about getting home tonight.
12 Opening Ceremonies
Special ♦ Friday, 7:30-8:30 P.M. ♦ Wisconsin
Undecided for the 8:45-10:00pm slot. I'd like to attend the LiveJournal panel, the Not Just Japan panel, the Racism in Fantasy panel, and the Puncutuation and Grammar panel. ALL AT THE SAME TIME.
30 Sherlock Dracula: The Appeal of the Vampire Detective
Reading, Viewing, & Critiquing Science Fiction and Fantasy ♦ Friday, 10:15-11:30 P.M. ♦ Senate B
Whether it's strictly forensic or mystically motivated, television vampires seem to have a nose for crime-stopping. In Toronto there's Tanya Huff's one-time royal heir Henry Fitzroy of Blood Ties, and actual cop Nick Knight of Forever Knight (on the night shift, of course). In L.A. there's brooding Angel of Angel Investigations and now private investigator Mick St. John of Moonlight. Why has the intersection of the detective genre and the vampire genre become so popular? It is all about redemption, or about sexy vampire powers that are good on a hunt?
M: Linda McAllister, Michael D. Thomas, Jorjet Harper
