Pros and Guests: Patricia Briggs, Jim Butcher, Rhiannon Held, J.A. Pitts

Opening Ceremonies (Geek Discussion)
Fri 7:00 – 7:50 PM, (Containment Room)

Plot, Plot, Plot (Writing)
Sat 2:00 – 2:50 PM, (Great Hall)
Pros and Guests: Carol Berg, Jim Butcher, J.A. Pitts, Patrick Swenson
Moderator: Carol Berg
What is plot? How is it different from storyline? How do you keep your writing moving fast? Our experts will share what they know.

The Dresden Files: a Discussion (Geek Discussion)
Sat 4:00 – 4:50 PM, (Upstairs Programming 1)
Pros and Guests: Beth Stoops
Moderator: Beth Stoops
An affectionate discussion/hint of roast of Jim Butcher’s Dresden Series.

Sat 4:00 – 4:50 PM, (Containment Room)
Pros and Guests: Carol Berg, Jim Butcher, John Goff, Peter Wacks (pjwacks)

Pros and Guests: Patricia Briggs, Jim Butcher, Diana Pharaoh Francis (Di), J.A. Pitts
Moderator: Diana Pharaoh Francis (Di)
We’ve heard a lot lately about post-apocalyptic dystopia, but what about utopia? Could utopia ever truly exist? Could a story exist within a utopia? If so, how do you write about conflict in a world where conflict is minimized? Or IS that the conflict?

Snarking Up Your Characters (Writing)
Sun 11:00 – 11:50 AM, (Containment Room)
Pros and Guests: Carol Berg, Jim Butcher, C.J. Cherryh, Diana Pharaoh Francis (Di)
Moderator: Jim Butcher

Sun 4:00 – 4:50 PM, (Containment Room)
Pros and Guests: M. H. Bonham (Maggie), Jim Butcher, John Goff, Dave Gross
Moderator: Jim Butcher
“Jack scoured the alley for a brick, a broken piece of glass—anything he could use as a weapon. But the alley was as bare as his backside, which he now pressed against the wall blocking his escape. He’d have to remember to thank Pallermo for that little jape. The thug behind the wheel hit the gas…” In this panel we’ll talk about how to write your character into a corner (literally, figuratively, emotionally), and how to get them back out again.

Cool Cosplayers

The term cosplay applies to any costumed role play in venues apart from the stage, regardless of the cultural context. - Wikipedia

I found this picture of some cosplayers on the web emulating Harry, Molly and Murphy and thought it to be an interesting picture.

And yes, there was a 2-season TV series, but a lot of Dresden fans would rather not mention it. I liked it well enough for what it was, but it didn't inspire me to pick up the books--this thread did that.
Book is on wait list so far
did view first 2 episodes tv series on recent plane flight
am getting rest
interesting like Supernatural tv show but no Devil or Angels - yet
Dresden seems weak wizard and uses tricks to defeat powerful foe

1 question: how did Dresden father who had no magic fend off powerful uncle?
a threat to "kill" from failed magician seems without weight

character Dresden was bad vampire in Gates show
Sorry Gates failed.

The uncle wanted Harry. If the uncle had killed the father, especially in Harry's presence, he would have "lost" Harry.

Oh, and Harry is NO weakling... 1. He tries (but often fails) to keep a low profile. 2. Even he didn't know exactly how powerful he actually is, but learns more as the written series continues.

They really could have done a better job supporting and promoting the tv show. I'm still holding out hope for a reboot.

I recommend you do what I do.

Think of the TV series as completely different from the book series.

Only one of the TV episodes is based on a book in the series. The characters and stories in the TV series are only very loosely based on the characters and stories in the book series.

Most of all, enjoy!
