SYFY Conference: NM


SYFY Conference

Aurther C Clark said; "Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic ".   With that in mind, where do we draw the lines between Science Fiction, Fantasy and Magic?  We can all look at some of our modern technology and understand why someone from the 1800's would look at it and declare it to be Magic, and a trick.  

We have invited a cadre' of SYFY authors to join us for a few hours to discuss how we might unwind the threads of this question and help us all reach some conclusions about how we view these different genres and perhaps view some related and deeper questions.   

Please join us and enjoy the discussions.
