So, I'm back from Balticon and mostly recovered.
The Writing Diverse Characters panel was standing room only with people sitting in the aisles. (If we do this again, we need a bigger room!)
The Being A Fan of Problematic Stuff was pretty well received too. It managed not to turn into a massive argument ;).
I'd also like to thank David Van Tassell for a great presentation on fight scenes - it was a film panel, but very useful to us prose writers too.
And I apparently need to keep reading a certain passage from Mother...
