Arisia schedule!

In Uncategorized on January 12, 2010 at 10:43 am

I’m looking forward to Arisia in the same way I used to look forward to school vacations! Here’s my bio and the panels that I’ll be on.

Vonnie Carts-Powell is the author of the popular science book, “The Science of Heroes” (published by Berkeley Press, 2008), and well over 1000 articles about science and technology. She is also an SF/F fan and a Morris dancer.

Sat 10:00am Kamikaze Costuming

Sat 2:00pm Ask a Geek: Physics, Chemistry, and Engineering

Mon 11:00am Subverting the Canon (This one should be exciting. Writeup: “Writers playing in someone else’s sandbox can’t help but bring their own sensibilities. How do writers of media tie-ins challenge or subvert what they’ve been handed? Is that a good thing? Can books and comics pushing the limits have their influence?” Cynthia A. Shettle, Marlin May, Vonnie Carts-Powell (m), Evan Jamieson.)

Mon 12:00pm Old Worlds, New Writers (And this one should be an interesting complement to the previous panel: “After Douglas Adams, Frank Herbert, Robert Jordan, and Roger Zelazny (among others) died, their books were given official sequels by new authors. Is this a legitimate way to explore their universes further, or just milking them dry? Vonnie Carts-Powell, Tyler Stewart (m), Paula Lieberman, Adam Lipkin.)
