October 9-11, 2015, I’ll be at CapClave in Gaithersburg, Maryland.

My schedule is below.

Saturday, October 10, 2015, 12:00 PM – 12:50 PM
“Urban Fantasy & Paranormal Romance”

Victoria Janssen, Alma Katsu, Dina Leacock (moderator), Sherin Nicole
What is the genre? What authors and works should people be reading?

Saturday, October 10, 2015, 1:00 PM – 1:50 PM
“Food In Fiction”

Ann Chatham, Brenda W. Clough, Victoria Janssen (moderator)
Even heroes and dragons have to eat. The food in a work of fiction can be a crucial part of the setting, and sometimes the fictional food enters the real world, as in A Feast of Ice and Fire. What authors do the best job with food and what do they do that’s effective? How do you write about food?

Sunday, October 11, 2015, 10:00 AM – 10:50 AM
“The Appeal of Doctor Who”

Cathy Green (moderator), Victoria Janssen, Alastair Reynolds, Hildy Silverman
Doctor Who has lasted over 50 years and 12 Doctors. Why has this series lasted so long? Why has the revival done so well in the US compared to the original? What are the differences between old and new Who? Has it jumped the shark?
