Literary Programming

 The Detcon1 literary program will celebrate our Author Guest of Honor Steven Barnes and his work, including his novels, scripts, comics, and short works. Discussions in the program will include science fiction and fantasy literature for adults, young adults, and children.  The SF-nal community of authors, editors, agents and fans will come together to discuss and present on projects past, present, and future, as well as writing techniques, publishing processes, and many themes of interest and issues of the day in the genre and in literature in particular.  There will also be readings, (and possibly Dramatic Readings), as well as literary beers and coffee-withs, autographing sessions, and other opportunities to meet your favorite authors.
