Do you love science fiction and fantasy?

Join us at Boskone®, a regional science fiction convention, which features:

Meet an impressive array of well-known figures in the field, including writers, artists, editors, publishers, musicians, scientists, gamers, bloggers, conrunners, reenactors, and fanzine editors. The longest-running SF con in New England, Boskone usually attracts more than 1000 fans and pros for a weekend of panels, readings, kids activities, demonstrations, small-group discussions, filksinging, videos, games and more!

Our innovative no-boundaries layout is designed to stimulate conversation between friends (old and new), and to support a warm, family-friendly, fannish community. Join us as we explore the worlds of the human imagination all served up with a dash of whimsy!

Visit the Boskone 50 website to see what the last Boskone was like, read some of the LiveJournal reviews, or view the Flickr slide show of past Boskones. Follow us online—we'll be Tweeting from Boskone (hashtag #boskone).
