SYFY's Nightflyers
UPDATED: Thu, Jul 12, 12:40PM
From the mind of George R. R. Martin, this new SYFY series is a psychological thriller set in the year 2093 that follows a team of scientists aboard the most advanced ship ever built. Their mission takes them to the edge of space but also to the edge of insanity, as they realize true horror isn't waiting for them out there-it's already on their ship. Unlike anything you've seen before, Nightflyers combines horror and science fiction in a way that Martin himself has described as " Psycho in space." Executive producers Jeff Buhler, Gene Klein, and David Bartis and stars Eoin Macken (The Night Shift), Gretchen Mol (Boardwalk Empire), David Ajala (Fast & Furious 6), Jodie Turner-Smith (The Last Ship), and Angus Sampson (Fargo) will give attendees an exclusive look into this exciting new series. Moderated by SYFY WIRE’s Karama Horne.

A Celebration of Mary Shelley
Mary Shelley (1797-1851) was so much more than the 17-year-old girl who eloped with her married boyfriend and wrote the immortal classic Frankenstein. Shelley is also the mother of both the science fiction and horror genres and wrote a novel so subversive that it was not published until 1959. Lisa Morton (president, the Horror Writers Association; Ghosts: A Haunted History), Leslie Klinger (The New Annotated Frankenstein, Sherlock Holmes technical advisor), Kate Jonez (chief editor at Omnium Gatherum Press, Best Horror of the Year), Gillian Horvath (showrunner, Primeval: New World; co-executive producer, Beauty & the Beast for CW), Kate Maruyama (professor, Antioch; Harrowgate), and New York Times bestselling author Nancy Holder (writer, Mary Shelley Presents comic book series from Kymera Press) discuss the importance of Mary Shelley in the cultural landscape. Moderated by D. Lynn Smith (publisher, Kymera Press).

Queer Fear
UPDATED: Mon, Jul 16, 11:07AM
Horror films, TV shows, books, and comics have always attempted to bring people to the threshold of their fears and force them to come face-to-face with the "otherness" that exists outside of the mainstream. For those in the LGBTQ+ community, this sense of otherness is not only terrifying and titillating, it's quite often also relatable. The LGBTQ+ community has had a long history of intersection with the horror genre-from the Gothic literature of the yesteryear to the modern cinema of today. As films, television, comics, and other popular media become more diverse, does a gay horror genre exist? And if so, what makes it different from mainstream horror? How does the current political climate alter the lens through which people celebrate and connect to the macabre? Prism Comics and moderator/screenwriter Michael Varrati (Tales of Poe, host of Dead for Filth) and panelists Marc Andreyko (Eisner Award-Winning writer & editor, Love is Love, Manhunter), Jaclyn Chessen (Shock Attack), John C. Clark (A Closer Walk with Thee), Erlingur Óttar Thoroddsen (Rift, Child Eater), Brie Williams (A Closer Walk with Thee, Welcome to Night Vale), and others explore horror from a queer point of view.
