Neither the snow of Thursday nor the blizzard of Saturday can keep a good Boskone down! The con continues, the hotel has rooms at the con rate, covered parking, food and drink. Why don't you come over?

Our 2014 schedule is up!

Boston Magazine named Boskone as a must-see cultural event for February!

Seanan McGuire's new book, Letters to the Pumpkin King, is available to Boskone members only through Sunday, February 16. Any remaining copies may be ordered through the NESFA Press site after Boskone.

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!

Boskone has a Code of Conduct.
