For those of you who are going to Comic Con, or are curious, they have finally published the schedule. It’s packed! I can’t believe how much is going on… and this is just for Thursday.
My panel, The Science Behind Science Fiction, is listed as happening at 5:30 that evening. I don’t know if that’s good or bad. Here’s the synopsis:
Celebrate the world of science fiction when Jaime Paglia (writer and producer of Eureka) and Phil Plait (badastronomy.com) lead a panel discussion with Discover Magazine editors exploring when science becomes good science fiction. Join Jaime, Phil and other special guests for an exciting discussion followed by Q&A.
Sounds fun to me! We’re still working on getting some more people for the panel.
If you look over the schedule, you’ll see a long list of people I’ll need to stalk while I’m there… Criminy: People from Doctor Who (Steven Moffat! Russell Davies!), Torchwood (John Barrowman!), even Keanu Reeves (plugging Day the Earth Stood Still). Not to mention Gail Simone, Wil Wheaton (yay!), J. Michael Straczynski, and J J Abrams. Adam Savage said he’d be there too, though I don’t see him on the schedule — he may be coming later in the con.
Yegads. I imagine it’ll be next to impossible to sidle up to most of these folks — it’s hard enough at TAM when they’re open and accessible. At CC it’ll be madness. But it’ll be fun to try.
