Sidewise Awards & Panel: What if "Science Fiction" Had Been Called "Speculative History?"
Friday 14:00 - 14:45, 300D
The Sidewise Awards for Alternate History will be awarded at the beginning of this panel.
While speculative fiction was born with the "what ifs" of Sir Thomas More's Utopia and Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, many of the "what ifs" over the centuries have explored various historical incidents. Explore the history of speculative history, and think about "what if" the field had been more focused on history than science.
Steven Silver, Lou Antonelli, Eileen Gunn, Derryl Murphy
