The discussion of the Alien series of films and the props used in them is the aim, but if it's got Big Bugs and Big Guns, then they are welcome too!

So, we have a panel at DCon this year. Basically, it's the one I wrote for Comicpalooza in Houston.

So it will be 11:30am on Friday, 1sr September, room to be confirmed. It will be part of the American Classic Sci-Fi track.

Join the colonial marines of the Aliens Legacy for an off the wall, quick fire quiz of all things Alien!

Why would an Alien be on Tinder? Why do Aliens steal shoelaces? Why was the colony on LV-426 an amusement park?

Answers to those and other questions you didn't want to ask, but we are going to tell you anyway!

Well, not looking for people to give the panel with me at this point, two reasons:

1. When I wrote this panel for Comicpalooza, I knew it was likely to be just me giving the panel because no one else was available. So manpower wise it's pretty bare bones.

2. Due to a scheduling conflict, this panel is being merged with another panel with two Alien book authors. I don't have names or contact details for them so I need to keep my panel plan flexible enough to accommodate these authors. Adding anyone else into the mix would make me pull my hair out in clumps.

Heckling: yeah, I realize with our lot being there, it's like entering the lion enclosure naked and covered in BBQ sauce.

Folks want to stand around in costume, that would be totally awesome.

My guesses for authors are Larry Correia and Scott Sigler. They are on my list for signing Bug Hunt. Any word on the panel's schedule?

Great. I wouldnt have been able to make the initial Friday estimate. If this time holds, I'll be there with grenades on to support the cause.

Well, that's news to me.

I haven't heard any different from the track director yet. But AFAIK we are part of the AMERICAN SCI-FI CLASSICS track and still scheduled for FRIDAY AFTERNOON.

Where are you getting this information from?

My bad then. I thought you posted that we were combined with some authors. The Title of the panel threw me off.

Maybe the authors are pulling a trick and doing multiple panels on different tracks? Who knows?

The good thing is that there is increasingly more Aliens stuff popping up at DC.

Yup, because of the me too mentality. They see how bad ass we are and want part of it.

Well, looks like we've pretty much been forced out of our own panel by the authors. I have emailed the Track Director for clarification, but I doubt there will be any suitable resolution. It will be safe to assume our panel is not going to go ahead.

Update: Spoke to the Track Director, basically they passed the buck and said it was someone higher than them that made the decision.

They also added two additional authors and a moderator. He confirmed that it wa because these guys want to promote and sell their books at the panel and that our contribution would be included at the end if there was time.

With that, I respectfully declined. I had a full hour worth of content that I had already altered to accommodate their previous demands, with the moderator and extra authors and the limited time, it rendered our panel useless. We deserved better.
