Boskone 46, Lensmen 0

February 3, 2009 at 2:33 am

I'll be attending Boskone 46 in lovely Boston, Massachusetts on the weekend of February 13-15.  (Soon!) I'm looking forward to it.  I've never attended a Boskone, but I hear nothing but good things about the convention.

I didn't decide until relatively late in the game that I'd be making the trip to Boston.  Even so, the concom has even been kind enough to put me on programming, listed below.

This looks like it should be fun!  My co-panelists on Friday are two of my usual partners in crime, so that should be a fun conversation.  Well, for us, anyway... maybe not for the audience.  As for Saturday, I've never met any of the other panelists, although I know them by reputation.  (I suspect they'll all be wondering who the hell I am.)  Although I found out that Chad Orzel and I share a mutual friend, so I'm looking forward to meeting him and learning all manner of interesting things about Pam (and maybe sharing some in return).

As for the reading, I think I'll take the prologue to Bitter Seeds.  I read it at the May meeting of the Albuquerque Science Fiction Society, and it fits neatly into a 25-minute slot.    It seemed to go over fairly well.
