|Fri||1000||Sprawl Fiction||"Sprawl fiction" was coined to show how new writers, most in their thirties, are trying to expand our genre yet still loving its very core, straight SF. Terms like "new Weird", "interstitial", "strange fiction" or "new fabulist" don't cover the trend fully. It is a natural reflection of our urban society and probably heralds the new stage of our evolution; to the stars. We talk about why the new generation slipstream is not the fusion of literary fiction and SF/F.||Ellen DATLOW, Gavin J. GRANT, Lou ANDERS, Yoshio KOBAYASHI|
|Fri||1200||How Healthy is the Short Story||For decades, there has been talk of the death of short fiction in science fiction, fantasy, and horror. Are markets shrinking? Is the quality less than it was thirty years ago?||Ellen DATLOW, Gavin J. GRANT, Joe HALDEMAN, Larry NIVEN|

|Sun||1400||The Short Story's Role in Fantastic Fiction||Short fiction rarely gets the attention that novels do by reviewers. It is harder to sell collections and anthologies than novels. The panelists, writers and editors of short fiction discuss their thoughts about the shorter forms (short story, novelette, novella) of fantastic fiction.||Ellen DATLOW, Gavin J. GRANT, Larry NIVEN, Pat CADIGAN|
