Boskone 50

NESFA's Regional Science Fiction Convention

Mark L. Olson

Program Participant

I'm a long-time SF fan who discovered SF long before I discovered fandom, and I discovered fandom long before I got involved in con-running, and only after that did I get involved in NESFA Press. I've chaired several conventions including a Worldcon (Noreascon 3), a Boskone, a Smofcon, and co-chaired a Ditto and I've worked on numerous others. I've edited a dozen books and reviewed SF for Aboriginal. I prefer schlock SF to schlock fantasy.

In real life I'm an astronomer who realized that I needed to make a living so I got my degrees in chemistry -- and wound up doing software development management. (But I still love astronomy more than anything else.)

My current major project is editing Fancyclopedia 3.
