At Boskone This Weekend

February 11th, 2014

I’m at at Boskone, one of the long-running Boston-area F/SF conventions, this weekend. (Weather permitting!).

I’m on three panels, one dealing with a subject that I love–stories told through documents–and two others dealing with online magazines or podcasting:

  • Great Podcasts and Where to Find Them (Sat 3pm): Panelists discuss some of their favorite podcasts, sites, and stories. (One of my favs being BCS 100: Boat in Shadows, Crossing” by Tori Truslow.)
  • From Pixels to Print: The Challenges of Running a Magazine (Sat 4PM): Funding, staffing, and managing your organization, and then printing (or enpixeling), distributing, and publicizing your precious products.

I also have a reading Friday at 9:00 pm, where I will probably read some of my Clark Ashton Smith pastiche.

Other than that, I’ll be wandering the halls with plenty of BCS flyers and postcards, in the bar, or trawling the party floor.  Feel free to say hello!

At Capclave This Weekend

October 8th, 2013

I’m at Capclave, my local D.C.-area F/SF con (where reading is not extinct!), this weekend.

I’m on four panels, all dealing with online magazines or podcasting or secondary-world fantasy:

  • Friday 7:00 pm: New Media, New Markets, New Business Models (a review of notable genre ezines, their forms and business models)
  • Saturday 2:00 pm: World’s Shortest Epics (epic fantasy in short fiction; what makes it work and who’s doing it)
  • Saturday 3:00 pm: Hearing Voices? (a survey of podcasts)
  • Saturday 5:00 pm: The Evolution of Fantasy (modern fantasy trends and tastes)

I also have a reading Friday at 8:00 pm, where I may read something forthcoming in BCS or some of my own fiction. Drop by and find out!

Other than that, I’ll be wandering the halls with plenty of BCS flyers and anthology-cover postcards, in the bar, or trawling the party floor.  Feel free to say hello!
