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:
- Alternate Voices (Sat 1PM): Stories told through documents, letters, and reports. (Such as the BCS stories “The Calendar of Saints” by Kat Howard, “The Governess and the Lobster” by Margaret Ronald, and “On the Origin of Song” by Naim Kabir.)
- 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!
