Lunacon Panels

I’ll be attending Lunacon this Saturday in Rye, New York and I will be on the following panels:

Monsters of Modernity, Grand North, 1:00 – 2:00 PM
What if a vampire bite isn’t just a vampire bite? From vampires and sexuality to Frankenstein and the Enlightenment, to The Thing and the AIDS epidemic, monsters have often stood in as allegory for modern issues.
Gary Frank, Matthew Kressel, Jonathan Maberry, Kim Paffenroth [M]

Year in Computing, Odelle, 4:00 – 5:00 PM
What were this year’s awesome breakthroughs in computers?
Seth Breidbart [M], Matthew Kressel, Robert Rosenberg

From Ebooks to Print and Back Again, Maple, 5:00 – 6:00 PM
Ebooks, e-readers and the marketplace. Dead trees versus electricity and wires. Will this really revolutionize the way we read books, or is that all just hype and glamor to get you to buy an e-reader? Are people who cling to paperbacks Luddites who refuse to move on with the times or are they clinging to something real?
Joseph Bellofatto, Ty Drago [M], Glenn Hauman, Matthew Kressel, Michael Walsh

I hope you can join me there.
