LunaCon schedule

I keep forgetting to post this. Gah!
Anyway, I'll be at LunaCon this weekend. Well, this Saturday and maybe Sunday--haven't decided about the latter yet. But if you're there and you care, here are the panels I'm on:

Saturday, March 17th
Superman Returns vs. Batman Begins
11:00 AM-12:00 PM
Description: These two films both reinvigorated and relaunched their respective series on the big screen. Compare and contrast their approaches and results. BB started over while SR picked up old threads; did one work better than the other? Are the new leads (Christian Bale as Batman/Bruce Wayne, Brandon Routh as Superman/Clark Kent) right for their roles?
Participants: Jeanne Cavelos, Brandy Hauman, David Mack, Aaron Rosenberg, Michael A. Ventrella

Game Designers' Roundtable
4:00-5:00 PM
Elija Budd
Game designers of various RPGs talk about particular challenges of design and worldbuilding.
Participants: Phil Brucato, Leigh Grossman, Jess Hartley, David Honigsberg[M], Aaron Rosenberg

Trek Literary Spinoffs
5:00-6:00 PM
Description: Writers and editors tell you the process they went through to develop literary spinoff series based on "Star Trek," including the Klingon themed Gorkon books, the S.C.E. eBooks, the Titan series, New Frontier, Stargazer and Vanguard.
Participants: Keith DeCandido, Bob Greenberger, David Mack[M], Aaron Rosenberg, Josepha Sherman

The State of Small Press Publishing
6:00-7:00 PM
Description: Are the small mammals nipping at the heels of the dinosaurs?
Participants: Aaron Rosenberg, Michael Walsh, Diane Weinstein, Ben Yalow

I also intend to sit in on this one, because, well, it amuses me:
Time Management for Writers
2:00-3:00 PM
Gazebo C
Description: One of the most common excuses would-be writers give for not writing is that they don't have time. Busy writers sit down and tell you how they juggle full-time jobs, part-time jobs, families, and multiple deadlines.
Participants: Jonathan Maberry, David Mack

And I may check this one out as well, to see if I can learn anything useful:
Book Editors' Roundtable
3:00-4:00 PM
Grand South
Description: What are editors looking for, what are they seeing to much of, what annoys them, and what makes some writers a pleasure to work with.
Participants: Ginjer Buchanan[M], Liz Gorinsky, Jennifer Heddle, Anne Sowards

The rest of the time I'll be wandering around and hopefully hanging out with friends. If you can read this and you're going, I hope that includes you. :)
