Capclave 2016

I’ll be attending Capclave in Gaithersburg, MD this weekend. Most of the time, I’ll be at my table in the dealer’s room, but I’m on a few panels too:

Friday 10:00 pm: Where’s My Flying Car? (Ends at: 10:55 pm) Bethesda

Panelists: Neil Clarke (M), Andrew Fox, Ian Randal Strock, Christopher Weuve
Which science fiction inventions haven’t arrived yet that you wish would hurry up and get here? Which SF future would you most like to see before you die? Which SF future are you most relieved has NOT come to pass?

Saturday 11:00 am: Alternate & Secret History (Ends at: 11:55 am) Salon A

Panelists: Neil Clarke, Walter H. Hunt, Edward M. Lerner, James Morrow (M), Tim Powers
Although alternate and secret history seem related, they are quite different. What are the differences? How do you tell them apart? What factors must you keep in mind when writing in either area?

Saturday 3:00 pm: Short Fiction Contracts (Ends at: 3:55 pm) Boardroom

Coordinator: Michael Capobianco (M), Neil Clarke
Workshop on understanding publishing contracts both for short fiction, what to look out for, what to negotiate. Limited to 10 people
