5782. Has Science Fiction changed the course of relationships in America
America has gone through many social upheavals in the last half century. We are arguably not the same society that we were in the 1960's/70's. In many ways we have become the society that writers like Robert Heinlein, Marion Zimmer Bradley, Spider Robinson and Anne McCaffrey have written about. Besides the massive evolution in technology in the last fifty years, there are now people who live in multiply committed relationships, same sex marriages, triads, open marriages, group houses and other configurations. Many more people have thought about trying different kinds of relationships. The presenters of this panel have studied, written about, and lived many of these alternative lifestyles, and will talk about the changing face of relationships in fandom, and in America. Moderated by Glen W. Olson.

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?
