Science Fiction as Epic at RavenCon 2017, 4-28

So you can compare and contrast, you can see that this was my general idea for the panel originally, as this was my first panel at a convention as a moderator.

And now, you can see how my execution was.

The Description?

Often science fiction that is epic in nature is dismissed as "space opera," but science fiction can be epic without resorting to the world destroying of Edmond Hamilton or the dogfighting X-Wings of Star Wars. What constitutes epic science fiction and what does it do that more personal stories can't?

With panelists including...

Steve White
Jack McDevitt
Charity Ayres
Nancy Northcott
