Panel Room 7 (1A22)
FIGHTING LIKE CATS AND DOGS
Panel Description: In the furball battle for supremacy, what shapeshifter is going to claw, bite, gnaw and scratch its way to the top of the pack? In recent novels by novelists such as Pamela Palmer and Juliana Stone, paranormal romance fans have gone absolutely feral over the emergence of cat shapeshifters…they purr, what’s sexier than a werepuma or wereleopard? Loping through the howling legions of the other side of the debate comes authors such as Jocelynn Drake, Marjorie M. Liu, and Margaret Ronald – who might argue that woman’s best friend is going to hound all the competition until they emerge triumphant. The argument may get catty; and the arguments over which breed of shapeshifter is sexier are going to be doggone good – so come and join the melee!
Moderator: Jeaniene Frost – Panelists: Jocelynn Drake, Marjorie M. Liu, Pamela Palmer, Margaret Ronald, Juliana Stone
3:30 to 4:30 pm
