Here is my appearance sched for SF Contario 2011, November 18-20th. See you there!
Non-traditional relationships in Science Fiction and Fantasy –Sat 10 AM Solarium
How are alternative relationships depicted in SF/F? How can we create a more inclusive community for fans and writers who identify as GLTBQ? Is the genre of Urban Fantasy particularly well-suited for exploring these identities? (Kathryn Allan, JM Frey, Susan MacDonald, Adam Shaftoe)
Cockpit; Rules of Engagement – Film Screening – Sat. 12 PM, Ballroom BC

Short Story Reading Hour – Sat. 3 PM, Gardenview

The Role of the Companion (M) – Sat 9 PM Gardenview
Cockpit: The Rule of Engagement is an award winning indie short film written and directed by Jesse Griffith. Starring Ronny Cox (Deliverance, Robocop, Total Recall) Hellena Taylor (Bavonetta, Saboteur, Stargate Atlantis) and Karl Champley (Wasted Spaces, DIY to the Rescue) the film made its debut at Comicon as a proof of concept for a feature length screenplay. Both stories are set on the front lines of a war against an enemy that uses mind control and subversion to turn humanity against itself. After a premiere Canadian screening, this panel will explore the themes and motifs of the film as well as discussing the challenges of fast-paced story telling within the confines of a cerebral space opera format. (Adam Shaftoe, J M Frey, Matt Moore)
