I’ll be attending Arisia this weekend, January 16-21. Here’s my schedule; yes, I am doing that late-night panel on Friday. But only because it’s Dr. Who.
Friday, 11:30 PM, Revere
“Doctor Who: Companions Through the Ages”
Our celebration of the 50th anniversary of Dr. Who doesn’t overlook the importance of his companions. From schoolgirl Susan to sword-swinging Amy, they have run the gamut. Who are your favorites and why? What makes a “good” companion and who were you glad to see go?
Victoria Janssen [mod], Gordon Linzner, James Zavaglia, Jennifer Pelland, Santiago Rivas
Saturday, 4:00 PM, Hale
Authors Victoria Janssen, Daniel José Older, and Sonya Taaffe read selections from their works.
Sunday, 1:00 PM, Otis
“YA You Want to Read”
Come discuss the best YA SF/F that came out in 2012 and what to anticipate in 2013.
Victoria Janssen [mod], Adam Lipkin, Vikki Ciaffone, Aurora Celeste
Sunday, 8:30 PM, Revere
“Doctor Who: The Dissertation of the Daleks”
We continue our celebration of all things Who with a look at the Daleks, one of the Doctor’s oldest and most persistent adversaries. Why are they so popular? When will they return? And how can they be stopped now that they don’t need to climb stairs?
Adam Lipkin [mod], Samantha Dings, Victoria Janssen, Forest Handford, Michael Lee
