Ballroom A
Description :

Science Fiction and Fantasy are ever increasingly mainstream genres. Is this because authors are gearing their works towards a wider audience, or is it because big budget films and television shows are spotlighting the genres? As a means for social commentary, what do modern works have to say about the society that gave them birth? Come listen to George R. R. Martin and Blake Charlton (both courtesy of Tor Publishing) speak on the subject.
