Boskone 51, NESFA's Regional Science Fiction Convention


Boskone Program offers panels, talks, discussions, demos, and workshops on many aspects of the science fiction and fantasy field, populated by a wide assortment of speakers. We include items about hard SF and fantasy, science and art, fandom and movies, literature and TV, horror and comics, music and singing, and heaps of related topics! Program also includes interviews with our Guest of Honor, slide-shows and demos with our artists, and individual presentations. These are the types of presentations and settings you can expect at Boskone—since many panels run concurrently, it will be your tough decision as to what to attend! If you have questions, write to Program.

Read the book and join in the discussion!

In addition to a variety of Program, Boskone runs parties and entertainment throughout the weekend:
