Working on Boskone: Boston’s Longest Running Science Fiction & Fantasy Convention

The Underwords blog has been a bit quiet lately because I’ve been pouring my time into launching Geek Theater (released Nov 2014) and building the program for Boskone 52 (Feb 13-15, 2015). There are several conventions that take place in the Boston area, but Boskone is by far my favorite … which is why I volunteer my time to help plan and run the convention. It’s a terrific convention for people who love SF & Fantasy books, but we always include other genres like horror, young adult fiction, mystery, and noir as well as comics, games, anime, music …. and lots of real science!

Boskone is a great example of how a classic science fiction convention can be modernized while simultaneously maintaining the comfortable, relaxed, and safe atmosphere that is so wonderfully conducive for meeting new people and getting together with old friends. Plus, did I mention all of the amazing writers, artists, publishers, musicians, and scientists who will be there? Here’s the list of program participants.

We have a lot of new program participants this year. So, we have begun running a new series called the Boskone Mini Interviews, which provides a nice introduction to many of our program participants who share fun little tidbits about themselves, what they’re working on now, what inspires them, and what they are looking forward to at Boskone. I hope you enjoy the Mini Interviews whether or not you are able to come to Boskone because these are definitely people you want to get to know.

Here’s the list of Mini Interviews that have already been published…and more are coming!

If you’re interested in attending Boskone, the pre-registration rates are: $50 Adults; $35 College Students; $25 K-12 Students. For more information, people can visit Boskone’s website, friend us on Facebook, and follow us on Twitter @BoskoneNews.
