Previous Entry Share Next Entry

After having to miss last year, I'm delighted to be returning to Boskone this coming weekend. Hope to see many of you there. My schedule:

Friday 7 pm Where Did All the Ghost Stories Go?
F. Brett Cox (Moderator)
Gregory Feeley
Elaine Isaak
Faye Ringel
Darrell Schweitzer
...and why aren't very many being written today? (Although, to be
honest, "The Graveyard Book" might change the landscape: agree or
disagree?) While you're at it, take the opportunity to wax nostalgic
about the great ghost stories of the past.

Friday 9 pm Zombie Readings
F. Brett Cox
Jack M. Haringa
John Langan (Moderator)
Paul G. Tremblay
As part of the Zombie Casino, we're having an open reading of
(hopefully horrific!) zombie-oriented material, either written or
selected by our participants. Bring your own selections and join the
hideous hilarity....

Saturday 1 pm The Banality of the Future
F. Brett Cox
Charles Gannon
Walter H. Hunt (Moderator)
Allen M. Steele
Vernor Vinge
Lots of exciting stuff that was supposed to happen by now ...
didn't. No interplanetary travel. No rocket packs. Not even any
sexbots! What if this kind of thing goes on? What factors make it
likely that the coming decades will be really dull? (Frankly, do you
really want to live in ..."interesting"...times?)

Saturday 3 pm Is Fantasy Displacing SF?
F. Brett Cox
Justine Graykin
David G. Hartwell (Moderator)
Daniel Hatch
Mary Kay Kare

Sunday 10 am Reading (0.5 hrs)
F. Brett Cox

Sunday 1 pm Where is Horror Now?
F. Brett Cox
Jack M. Haringa (Moderator)
John Langan
Paul G. Tremblay
An up-to-the-minute look at the field...and where it's going.
