This isn't *exactly* the last minute...

Due to fear-of-flu cancellations, I'm down to two panelists on "Um, It's Complicated: Relationships in SF/F".

Description: As complex as real world relationships are, SF/F fiction offers a much wider (and weirder) array of choices, options, and difficulties. Does dating a hive mind count as being monogamous? How about pre-emptive paternity suits filed against time travelers? What if you're in love with a sentient cloud of neutrinos? From John Varley's *Eight Worlds* stories to Charles Stross's *Accelerando* and beyond, explore the limits of what relationships are like in a world different from our own.

I need at least one more person on this. I'd be happiest with three more people. It's Sunday at 11:30 PM. (I know, I know. I wish I had more than one room to run Lit Track in.)

If you are already an Arisia panelist and you're interested, please tell me! (I cannot comp you into the con at this point, and you won't be in the program, but you'll be in the newsletter.)

It's tempting, but I do not have as much literary experience on the topic, just TV and movies.

I'll allow it. (People end up talking about TV and movies anyway.)

Ummmm
I didn't say, "Yes" or "I'll do it". Why is my name on the panel?

I thought you were offering! I can take you off.

I said it was tempting. I didn't decide.
Not cool!

I am a little light in the literature, and Sunday is going to be hell on earth, but if you get no one, I'll throw some notes together and send them on to you.

This is my desperation face.

Brain melty now, but I have an idea (many ideas) and figured out some of the relationship things I could glean from books (heavy on the Clive Barker). I can do this. I'll send out notes tomorrow or Wednesday, latest.

Only a program participant, not a panelist. Would be interesting; perhaps I'll be in the audience.
