- Pauline Alama asked who on the list is going to be at Worldcon ....
As David already noted, I'll be there. He and I are scheduled to host
(I guess that's the right word) a Mythopoeic Society SIG (special
interest group) on Friday. Here's the write up:
Friday 2:30pm SIG: The Mythopoeic Society (1.5 hrs)
David Bratman (dbratman@...)
Eleanor M. Farrell (emfarrell@...)
Join the members of the Mythopoeic Society discussing high fantasy,
the Inklings, and classic fantasy.
We'd love to see any Society members (or anyone interested in our
activities) attend; we can make it a lit party!
I'm also on two other related panels (as well as one on media costuming):
Sunday 10:00am Judging Awards: Tiptree, Spectrum, Sturgeon,
Mythopoeic, and Campbell (1.5 hrs)
Juried award panels discuss how they choose their nominees, how they
decide their winners, and how these awards affect their winners.
Sunday 2:30pm Book to Movie and Back Again (1.5 hrs)
Harry Potter and LOTR were made into movies. Attack of the Clones
became a book. Which translation works better? Is this intrinsic to
the type of translation? What, for instance, would the novelization
of LOTR look like?
This last one could be .... interesting. I have no idea why I was put
on it (but will leave my comments for the panel!).
Finally, as Lisa pointed out, we'll have a Mythopoeic Society fan
table at the con. Hope to see many of you at ConJose!
