Wiscon 36, Monday

Monday morning was another early start, with Georgie's panel "Can We Talk?", which dealt with intergenerational communication. There was a gratifyingly large audience for that hour on Monday morning, and Georgie, Beth Plutchak, and Kate O'Brien Wooddell lead a very interesting discussion.

Our last panel was "Religion, Magic, Science, and Politics in Speculative Fiction." Panelists were Jim Frenkel, Alex Bledsoe, Carolyn Ives Gilman, Carol Townsend, and Deirdre Murphy. It was a large panel for a too-large topic. This easily could have been four panels, and the avowed purpose of discussing how to balance these factors in SF and F never really came off, although what did get expressed was interesting to listen to.

After that, we rolled home, tired but satisfied. This year was just a particularly good convention for us: things came together really well, we met people we wanted to talk to when they hadd time to talk, etc. We are, of course, signed up for next year.
