Saturday at Shore Leave. 🙂
There is one thing I make sure not to miss every year at Shore Leave — the breakfast buffet at the Cinnamon Tree restaurant. They have omelets and they have Belgian waffles. It’s the only time all year I get omelets. I usually order one with ham and cheese and onion and tomato. Yep, those four things. And I’m good.
Other than breakfast, what panels do I have on tap for today?
- Doctor Who: What Hath Rusty Wrought? — Hunt Valley Ballroom, 10am to 11am.
Doctor Who, obviously. Probably the just-finished Torchwood: Children of Earth. Almost certainly how much I fancy Karen Gillen. And rampant speculation. Panelists, besides myself, include Kathleen David, Nea Dodson, Terri Osborne, John S. Drew, and Aaron Rosenberg.
- The Young Gun Writers Ride The Range — Hunt Valley Ballroom, 11am to Noon
Every writer gets a start somewhere. What makes the writer sit alone in a quiet room and peck away at the keyboard? What kind of goals does an up-and-coming writer have? Do we have Dave Mack and Keith DeCandido yelling at us and telling us to get off the damn lawn? Some of Shore Leave’s up-and-comers talk about the writing process. Our panelists for this wild-and-wooly panel — Allyn Gibson, Amy Sisson, John Coffren, Kevin Lauderdale, Scott Pearson, Steve Mollmann, James Johnson, and Aaron Rosenberg.
- Star Trek XI Smackdown! The Writers Sound Off — Hunt Valley Ballroom, Noon to 1:30</b>
What do people who have written Star Trek think of the new film? Panelists include Chris Bennett, John Drew, Kevin
Dilmore, Ann Crispin, Terri Osborne, Keith R. A. DeCandido, Peter David, Michael Jan Friedman, Glenn Hauman, Dave Galanter, Geoff Trowbridge, James Johnson, Greg Cox, and me.
- From Comics To Movies, the Trend Continues — Salon A, 4pm to 5pm
What the title says. Comic books to movies. Panelists include Peter David, Bob Greenberger, Michael Jan Friedman, Glenn Hauman, Rigel Ailur, Allyn Gibson, John S. Drew, and Greg Cox.
And there’s lots of other really cool stuff going on today. The Masquerade, of course. Hanging out in the bar.
It’s gonna be good. 🙂
