Advertising Letter

November 20, 2002

To Whom It May Concern:

We are soliciting advertising for the Boskone 40 Program Book, which will be published in conjunction with Boskone, the regional convention to be held February 14-13, 2003 at the Sheraton Boston in Boston, MA. Boskone is the oldest SF convention in New England, with this upcoming convention being the 40th. This year's Guests of Honor are David Brin (Writer), Jim Burns (Artist), Charles N. Brown (Special Guest); our Featured Filker is Clam Chowder.

The Program Book will be 8-1/2 x 11 (wxh) format. All copy must be camera ready. Camera-ready copy is "black" art, a velox at 133 lines/inch, open screen, or a true halftone. We will accept bleeds for full-page ads only. Subject to availability, we will place ads on the right hand side, unless you request other placement. Contact us if you have a special request.

Copy received by us, which does not meet the above requirements, must be specially processed. We have been informed that these charges will be in excess of $100 per hour, plus costs, if this processing is available.

Deadline for reservations is January 3, 2003, and deadline for all advertising copy is January 14, 2003. We cannot guarantee that any copy received after this date will be included in the Program Book.
