Fantasy Aliens

Saturday Aug 18   05:00 PM to 06:00 PM (1 hour)
We often think of aliens as science fictional beings--extraterrestrials--but there is also a rich tradition of crossover between fantasy and science fiction. Lovecraft gave us alien-like monsters in his fantasy stories, while Anne McCaffrey gave us fantastical dragons in her science fiction. As our stories and storytelling methods evolve, how is the crossover potential of science fiction and fantasy evolving with it? Our panelists will explore the many ways aliens can be fantastical and fantasy can feel alien in books, games, and beyond.
