6:00 PM – 7:15 PM THE WEIRD ON A BLACK AND WHITE SCREEN: CLASSIC WEIRD TELEVISION — Washington-Newport Room, Omni 3rd Floor
The Twilight Zone, The Outer Limits, Alfred Hitchcock Presents, Kolchak the Night Stalker — For decades, classic television brought the weird into living rooms across America. Our panelists explore the classic era of weird television. What did they do well and not so well? How did they influence generations of creators and fans of weird fiction, cinema, and television?
Panelists: Nicholas Kaufmann (M), Gwendolyn Kiste, Pete Rawlik, Alan Tromp, Joe Zannella

Sunday, August 25th

10:30 AM – 11:45 AM ENDLESS DARKNESS, ENDLESS CHAOS, ENDLESS WAR: THE COSMIC HORROR OF THE WARHAMMER UNIVERSE – Biltmore Ballroom, Graduate 17th Floor
The Warhammer universe is as vast as it is grim, positing cosmic horror on a scale that boggles the imagination. Whether played out in the Age of Sigmar fantasy setting or the million embattled worlds of 40K, humanity is doomed to conflict against alien races, malign supernatural powers, and malevolent gods with a distinct Mythos flavor. For over thirty years, Games Workshop has produced and licensed wargames, RPGs, video games, fiction, and film, all of which share the Warhammer world view. Our expert panel discusses the philosophical themes of the Warhammer Universe, their expression in the games, and how they relate to the work of HPL.
Panelists: John Goodrich, Niels Hobbs (M), Nicholas Kaufmann, Mike Mason, Molly Tanzer
