My Boskone Schedule

For those of you planning to attend the Boskone science fiction
convention this weekend (Boston, MA), here is my projected schedule (behind the cut tag).

Come say hi!


Friday 8:00pm
Hal Clement Memorial
Panelists: Michael A. Burstein, Matthew Jarpe, Anthony R. Lewis
Description: We lost a friend this year. Here is a chance to talk about him.

Saturday 1:00pm
Still Rivers Run Deep: The Fiction of Hal Clement
Panelists: Michael A. Burstein, Jeffrey A. Carver, Daniel P. Dern,
David G. Hartwell
Description: For decades, Hal Clement/Harry Stubbs was best-known for
a novel issued in 1953. But _Mission of Gravity_ was succeeded by at
least 10 more -- the last, _Noise_, published the month before his
death last October. Each demonstrated his skill with the "science
problem" story. Let's discuss what other qualities his work displays.
How about rigor, vigor, humanity, optimism, and a touching faith that
we know more science than is actually the case?

Saturday 2:30pm
Reading (0.5 hrs)
Michael A. Burstein
Description: Burstein reads from his upcoming time-travel novella,
"Time Ablaze" (Analog, June 2004).

Sunday 10:00am
Kaffeklatsch
Description: Come join Michael for an hour conversation. Bring your questions!

Sunday 11:00am
Are Spaceships passe?
Panelists: Michael A. Burstein, Jordin T. Kare, Ian Randal Strock
Description: Is space travel no longer important in society's
imagination? Has children's literature abandoned space for dragons?

Sunday 2:00pm
Twenty Panels in an Hour
Panelists: Michael A. Burstein, Keith R. A. DeCandido, Bob Devney,
Leigh Grossman
Description: Using patented ThoughtSquasher compression technology,
the seasoned "Sunday Funny Sunday" crew whips through 20 complete
panel topics (not including this one) in 50 minutes or less, just
because they can.

Hal Clement

I still can't belive he's gone, he was a good friend and a huge asset to the SF Community. He is missed.
