* Sat 1:00 PM in Plaza I (One)—Philip K. Dick As Classic Literature (24)
He's in Library of America these days. Irony of irony, his science fiction has achieved mainstream acceptance, even though his mainstream fiction never did. What has caused this academic/critical awakening?
John Moore (mod), Diane Weinstein, Bernie Mojzes, Gary Feldbaum, Andrew C. Murphy
There was a third panel, which I begged off as it takes place at the same time as the "All Things Dark and Dangerous" book launch party - we're launching The Evil Gazebo (by yrs trly, illustrated by Linda Saboe), The Halfling's Court (by Danielle Ackley-McPhail, illustrated by Linda Saboe), and Dead Souls (ed. by Mark Deniz, containing stories by yrs trly and James R. Stratton, who will also be there for the launch).
The launch is in the con suite on Saturday from 7-9pm. There will be a raffle with prizes. There will be munchies. There will be prints by Linda available - illustrations from both books, plus some other images.
