I'm excited to sit in a panel moderated by Howard. He's exceedingly opinionated and witty, which are things I admire in a panel moderator. It will also be very cool to sit with Liz Gorinsky, as she was consistently incisive and articulate at Steamcon.
Is there a philosophy behind steampunk? If so, what is it? If not, what should it be?
I'm stoked about this, mainly because I have a pretty strong opinion about whether or not steampunk has a philosophy. I'm also excited because as I've already stated, Liz is well-spoken and intelligent, and J. Daniel Sawyer made for some of the best dialogue I had while at Steam Powered. Do I really need to comment on the fact that James Blaylock is on this panel? This makes up for Chris Garcia scooping the interview with him.
(It'll be nice to get a chance to deliver this panel now that I've thought out the material even further with the submission for Neo-Victorian Studies.)
STEAMPUNK FANS IN ACTION Panel
I love these panels where you talk about doing what you love. (and speaking of which...)
DUNGEONS & DICKENS Presentation
Again, it will be nice to revisit this session, especially now that the campaign is winding down.
I hope to see some of you at the Con - make sure to come and introduce yourself!
