I finally got my schedule for Orycon 34, which happens from November 2-4 in Portland, Oregon.

Three Thumbs Up
Morrison             Fri Nov 2 2:00pm-3:00pm
Book and movie reviews have their own special pitfalls.  When to be
snarky, when to be nice, developing a style, filling a niche, and how to
stand out in a sea of freely-offered commentators and reviewers in print
and on the web.
(*)John C. Bunnell, Aaron Duran, Craig Laurance Gidney

Group 2 Horror Short Story
WW1                  Fri Nov 2 4:00pm-5:00pm

Wendy N. Wagner, Craig Laurance Gidney

Writing the Other: Races and Cultures
Morrison             Fri Nov 2 5:00pm-6:00pm
Speculative fiction often takes steps toward being more egalitarian, but
there are still huge challenges ahead.  Issues of appropriation, respect,
stereotypes, and taking chances.  How to get educated and still write
naturally and from the heart.
J. A. Pitts, Stoney Compton, Alma Alexander, (*)Grá Linnaea, Craig
