Boskone History
Boskone 39


The program at Boskone includes panel discussions, presentations, hands-on demonstrations, kaffeeklatsches (small group discussions with the author of your choice), concerts and author readings and signings. The subjects of these items are science fiction, fantasy, science fact, education, fandom, and a host of related topics. About 100 writers, editors, publishers, artists, art directors, scientists, and fans will participate in our programming.

There is an updated preliminary schedule available. Times, participants and places are subject to change!

Please see Gary McGath's TimeCzar Calendar for Boskone for a searchable Program and to create files for your PDA.

Animé & Video Program

Our animé sempei have been working hard since last Boskone devising a schedule of unusual and entertaining animé and video features you're not likely to see on cable.

Children's Program

Boskone 40 will host Dragonslair for children 7-12 years of age. Dragonslair consists of arts and crafts, storytelling, and structured play featuring noted sf-genre pros. Space Cadets is a program during the day at Boskone for 2½-to 6-year-olds with pre-school activities.
(Sorry, we will not be offering babysitting at Boskone this year.)
