Everything has a price in magic, and everything needs an explanation in science fiction - and both describe the fantastical and (currently) impossible. What makes one approach preferable to another? Is one harder to read or to write than the other? A panel of writers whose stories feature magic, or science, or both, will read short excerpts from our work and talk about why and how we chose our preferred flavor of speculation and/or fantasy, what guides our choices when depicting what in reality we cannot (yet) do, and what excites us about depicting abilities and events beyond our current understanding.
