The Vampires of New England Series--Inanna Arthen



Rewriting The Rules


December 15, 2013

My schedule at Arisia 2014

This is my schedule for Arisia 2014 (Jan 17-20). I’m very pleased with it! I have to say that the Harry Potter discussion in Fast Track (that’s the kids’ program, if you’re not familiar with Arisia) sounds like the most fun. Hope to see you there!

Friday

5:30pm
Magickal Traditions: a Review
“Like with any religious or spiritual path, there is a wide diversity in the practices and beliefs of modern Pagans, Neo-Pagans, Heathens and practitioners of other Magickal traditions. Panelists will discuss their respective paths, their practices and beliefs.”
with Alexandra Thorn (M), Isaac Everett, Sean Kane and Nisi Shawl.

8:30pm
No Excuses for Poor Research
“Modern research tools and what every author should know. If you’re already researching, *what* should you research? How do we find good research, that doesn’t propagate misconceptions or stereotypes?”
with Victoria Janssen (M), Elaine Isaak, Walter H. Hunt and Sarah Smith

Saturday

1:00pm
Fast Track: Open Discussion, The One and Only Harry Potter
“Sectumsempra! Just kidding. Since we can’t read your thoughts, come discuss Hogwarts, Harry, Hermione, Ron, and all the rest. What house would YOU be in? Or would you be in a different school altogether? Are Muggles being treated unfairly? What do you think the future would hold for the world of Harry Potter?”
with James Hinsey (M)

4:00pm
Reading (shared time with Deb Eskie, Daniel Jose Older and Morgan Crooks)

7:00pm
Vampires! Vampires! Vampires!
“For decades, people have been predicting that the “fad” of vampire literature was coming to an end any day now. And yet, series after series of vampire books by authors such as Rice, Elrod, Huff, Harris, Hamilton, Banks, and Meyer continue to be best sellers and spin off numerous successful TV series and films. Is it time for people to accept that vampires are as important to the SF/F genre as astronauts and wizards? Where is vampire literature going next?”
with Genevieve Iseult Eldredge (M), Tanya Huff (GOH), Leigh Perry and Gail Z. Martin

Sunday

11:30am
Fortune Telling Methods
“A discussion of favorite fortune telling methods, their uses, and how they’re portrayed in popular culture. Covering tarot cards to hydromancy and everything in-between.”
with Sheila M. Oranch (M), Kourtney Heintz, Catt Kingsgrave-Ernstein and Catherine Kane
