Attending Capclave 2015!

9-11 October 2015

Capclave 2015 proudly announces our Guests of Honor:
Gordon Van Gelder
Alastair Reynolds
Peggy Rae Sapienza (Ghost of Honor)

Location: Hilton Washington DC North/Gaithersburg,
620 Perry Parkway, Gaithersburg, Maryland 20877

I will be attending Capclave 2015 for Friday and Saturday and eagerly looking forward to "earning my keep" by moderating two panels, speaking on another, and doing a public reading of Yew Manor

My personal schedule is as follows:
Friday 4:00 pm: Antagonist Vs. Villain (Ends at: 4:55 pm) Rockville/ Potomac
Panelists:Carolyn Ives Gilman, Alan Loewen (M), Will McIntosh, Christie Meierz
Not all antagonists are villains. What is the difference? Why would authors use a non-villain antagonist? Who are some of the best non-villain antagonists in SF?
Friday 11:00 pm: Why Do Good People Do Bad Things? (Ends at: 11:55 pm) Bethesda
Panelists:Alan Loewen (M), C.S. MacCath, Michael A. Ventrella
What are the motivations for having otherwise-heroic people do villainous things in fiction? How can an author strike a balance between making an evildoer's actions believable and somewhat sympathetic without turning them into an antihero?
Saturday 10:00 am: Survival of the Short Form (Ends at: 10:55 am) Salon A
Panelists:Alan Loewen, Shahid Mahmud (M), Sunny Moraine, Gordon Van Gelder
In an age where virtually everyone carries Internet and eBook-capable smartphones why aren't more reading short stories while waiting on lines, during commercials etc.?
Saturday 4:00 pm: Reading - C. Alan Loewen (Ends at: 4:25 pm) Frederick
Author:Alan Loewen
