MidAmeriCon II “Changing the Medium” Panel

I almost missed out on this panel, but I’m glad I didn’t. The “Changing the Medium” panel at MidAmeriCon II featured authors Martha Wells and William C. Dietz as well as guests Gary Kloster, Christopher Kastensmidt and moderator Monica Valentinelli. Each of the guests on the panel shared some excellent insights on the writing business with a focus on writing in different mediums. This included tie-in work, novelizations and working with games, be it a tabletop game like Pathfinder or video games like Halo and Mass Effect. It was a very cool panel and I managed to get the first 12 minutes of it on video, and I’ve also got the audio for the full panel. Enjoy!

MidAmeriCon II “Queer Star Wars” Panel

Tags: , ,

At MidAmeriCon II, one of the more intriguing Star Wars panels was one called “Queer Star Wars.” With a greater call for diversity in fandom, this panel explored what roads Star Wars has begun to explore in regards of diversity as well as the stumbling blocks it has had to overcome. The panel touches on the reluctance of publishing to accept LGBT characters, their recent change in acceptance, and even the corporate issues with LGBT characters when foreign markets like China are unwilling to embrace such diversity.

The panel is moderated by Matt Jacobson and features Martha Wells (the author of Star Wars: Razor’s Edge), Vivian Trask, Dr. Amy H. Sturgis and Dr. Mary A. Turzillo.
