Dragon*Con: I'll be on These Panels

Dragon*Con 2011 approaches! This year I have been invited to be a panelist on three separate discussions on the Alternate History Track - aka The Steampunk track. And I'll be attending many of the other panels as well.

Thank you to Cindy MacLeod for putting this all together!

I hope to see you there!


9/2/11 Friday 2:30 PM - Applied Science of Steampunk.
Steampunk is largely about our interaction with technology, and in this panel we’ll discuss how to use that technology in your props, sculptures, or vehicles to make things that really work!

PANELISTS: Austin Sirkin (moderator), the League of STEAM, Mark Rossmore


9/3/11 Saturday 5:30 PM - Mechanical Melodies: A Steampunk Music Roundtable (Atlanta EFGH Ballroom, 7th Floor).
Join a salon of musicians & DJs as they debate what makes a band or song steampunk and discuss the music scene of the subculture’s past & future.

PANELISTS: Abney Park, Hellblinki Sextet, Frenchy and the Punk, Emmett Davenport, Mark Rossmore, Doctor Q (moderator)


9/5/11 Monday 10 AM - The Victorian Spacesuit.
Was the steam age technology of Victorian England capable of producing a working spacesuit?

PANELISTS: Hugh S. Gregory, Richard Jakiel, Mark Rossmore


I will have CDs on hand if you'd like to purchase one directly.
