Phillip Drayer Duncan

Panelist Guest / Writer

Phillip Drayer Duncan is the author of seven novels and over a dozen short stories with Yard Dog Press, Pro Se Productions, and Seventh Star Press. Along with reading and writing like a madman, he enjoys kayakin’, canoein’, fishin’, and pretty much anything nerd-related. More than anything, he enjoys spending time with his ridiculously awesome friends and his wonderful family. His earliest books were acted out with action figures and scribbled into notebooks. Today he uses a computer like a real grown-up. His greatest dream in life is to become a Jedi, but since that hasn’t happened yet he focuses on writing.

Writing the Epic: Voices, Layers, Landscape

Panelists discuss writing a many-layered epic, whether science fiction or fantasy. What makes a story epic? What does it mean to think outside the Tolkien box? How do you pick POV? How many characters are too many? What elements have proven most challenging or most useful? Is epic still meaningful in the modern world?

The Lore Breakers

For awhile, everyone knew how to kill a vampire or werewolf, until writers started changing things to make their critter “better.” Where is the line drawn? When is a bloodsucker or changeling no longer a vampire or wolf man?
