5857. 19th Century Science Fiction
From Poe and Shelly through Verne, Swift, and Hale to early Wells and Burroughs, where did it take us? Have we dismissed some of this too casually without careful thought? Is there any trope of the 20th century that was not started in the 19th or earlier? Moderated by Bradford Lyau.

SUN 11:30 am - 12:45 pm, Pacific Coast 2

5874. Grokking Heinlein
What were the constants of Heinlein's writing? Where did he challenge things that even he might have believed in, because he thought everything needed to be challenged? A free mind is seldom politically correct. And if one doesn't want characters to be stereotypical shouldn't we allow a writer characters who are idiosyncratic and not a typical woman, boy, black, Phlilpino, or Martian? Moderated by Terry Lee Brussel-Rogers.
