Panel Literature Writing
Who knew when Wild Cards was released in 1987 that it would grow to over 2 dozen books and still be going strong over 30 years later? The latest installments are Texas Hold ‘Em and Knaves Over Queens. The eighth book, One-Eyed Jacks, is being reprinted and released during the convention.
Join the creators and authors for this discussion about how it all started, and where it’s going to be going.
From 2-4, I plan to be in the SFWA Suite, where the SLF is sponsoring lunch! Come say hi!

How necessary is the visual or descriptive charge of an image in science fiction? How much do you have to let the viewer see and when do you suggest so that the reader’s imaginative engine works by itself? How do we open dialogues with the reader or viewer so that they activate their own channels of imaginative communication?
