MAGFest Schedule

We are just a week and a few days from MAGFest!

The official schedule is go and my panel schedule is, officially:

Thursday – 7:00 PM – Punk’d Up – Panels 4 (Annapolis 1-3)

This will be a fast-paced overview of punk-related genres: Cyberpunk, Steampunk, Gothic Punk, and others.  We’ll be talking about important works and figures in the genre, style over substance, and other affairs as we explore this surprisingly enduring sub-genre of fiction and art.

Friday – 4:30 PM – Top Ten Episodes of Transformers – Panels 2 (Woodrow Wilson Ballroom)

Gen-1 through Cyberverse and everything in between, this panel looks at the entirety of the Transformers television franchise and finds the absolute ten best episodes across its thirty-five year history.

Saturday – 11:30 AM – Simulating Game Mechanics in Literature – Panels 4 (Annapolis 1-3)

There’s more to capturing the spirit of a game than just calling a sword by a specific name.  What appeals to gamers about a gaming franchise may not be immediately evident and when writers want to help capture that feel, whether they be best-sellers or aspiring fanfictionists, knowing how to effectively and succinctly simulate game mechanics can make a good story into a near-canonical part of the fandom.

Other appearances may occur, you never know.  And I will of course be manning my table as well.  I hope to see you there!
