Military Sci-Fi - 2011 NY Comic Con panel w/ Myke Cole, Jack Campbell, Taylor Anderson - part 1 of 3
Accelerate To Attack Speed: Military Science Fiction
New York Comic Con panel - Oct 15, 2011
Military SF/F authors have kept readers at the edge of their seats by incorporating wartime experience and strategies of armed conflict into the far-future and alternate history worlds they create. Not since Luke Skywalker blasted the hell out of the Death Star have we seen such interest in war-inspired science fiction and fantasy. Perhaps a sign of the time we're in (and whatever might be said, we all bow before Scalzi's influence) people just want books about good guys defeating unfriendly space invaders and plausible visions of a future military. May the force be with everyone in the audience as Myke Cole, Jack Campbell and Taylor Anderson, fire up their ammo and discuss this Semper Fi friendly subgenre of popular fiction.
Moderated by Ginjer Buchanan (Editor in Chief at ACE books)
