Them's Fighting Words: Writing Combat In Science Fiction

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Science fiction readers are willing to suspend their disbelief to a point, and it’s important to know where that point is. This panel will focus on the finer details of writing combat in science fiction where the planet, the vacuum of space, and the technology can all challenge what we know.
