Capricon 37 Panels

The 37th iteration of Capricon begins this Thursday and is Chicago's only four-day science fiction convention.  Here are the panels I'll be on for Capricon this year.  Looking forward to moderating a lively discussion on two:

What Keeps You in Science Fiction Society? (Willow, Friday, 1 p.m.)
Every year you go to the same conventions, or you keep looking for that favorite author's books, or you clothe yourself as that character you like.  What keeps you participating in science fiction society at large?

Queer Eye for Sci-Fi: Season 3 (Birch, Friday, 7 p.m.)
Queer Eye for Sci-Fi returns for Season 3! There is a long and complex history of queerness in science fiction, from queer-coded villains in pulp novels to the more diverse spectrum of characterization in the previous decade. Join panelists as they discuss the history of queerness within the genre.
