My CapClave 2017 Schedule

I’ll be attending Capclave 2017 October 6-8, 2017. My panel schedule is below.

“Doctor Who: End of an Era, Beginning of a New One”
Saturday, October 7, 10:00 AM
Moffatt’s era ends and Chibnall’s era begins.  What did we think of the Capaldi era, and Clara and Bill as companions?  What do we want from Jodie Whittaker as the Thirteenth Doctor?  What are our hopes for Chibnall as showrunner?  What do we think of the Moffatt era vs. the Davies era?
Victoria Janssen, A.C. Wise, Hildy Silverman, Vanessa Phin [moderator]

“75 Years of Wonder Woman”
Saturday, October 7, 3:00 PM
It’s been 75 years since Wonder Woman first appeared in Sensation Comics Issue #1.  In that time she’s been in comic books, animated tv shows, a live action tv show, and the recent extremely popular movie starring Gal Gadot.  Panelists discuss the character and her interpretation over the years.
Fran Wilde, Janine Spendlove, Victoria Janssen [moderator], Jeanne Adams

“Octavia Butler”
Saturday, October 7, 6:00 PM
Twelfth Planet Press has just published Luminescent Threads.  While a more prolific novelist than short story writer, her short fiction, such as “Bloodchild,” continues to be discussed to this day.  Panelists will discuss the late Octavia Butler’s ongoing influence on the field.
Victoria Janssen [moderator], B. Sharise Moore, L. H. Moore, Sarah Pinsker, K. Ceres Wright

About Victoria Janssen

Victoria Janssen [she, her] currently writes cozy space opera for Kalikoi. The novella series A Place of Refuge begins with Finding Refuge: Telepathic warrior Talia Avi, genius engineer Miki Boudreaux, and augmented soldier Faigin Balfour fought the fascist Federated Colonies for ten years, following the charismatic dissenter Jon Churchill. Then Jon disappeared, Talia was thought dead, and Miki and Faigin struggled to take Jon’s place and stay alive. When the FC is unexpectedly upended, Talia is reunited with her friends and they are given sanctuary on the enigmatic planet Refuge. The trio of former guerillas strive to recover from lifetimes of trauma, build new lives on a planet with endless horizons, and forge tender new connections with each other.
