Brushing up for Boskone

February is here, and with it comes not only a shocking pile of snow, but also one of my favorite parts of the geeky side of the calendar: Boskone.  Last year I got to have tea and coffee with Jane Yolen (wow!) and Bruce Coville (also wow!).

This year, if you have the time available, there’s a bunch of free programming on Friday afternoon (2/13), which looks like a really cool selection of stuff.   I’m starting a new job so I won’t be able to make it before Friday evening at the earliest, but there’s no shortage of neat stuff to see the rest of the weekend. (Link above also goes to the rest of the weekend’s program.)

If you should happen to be at the convention on Sunday morning, don’t miss the Flashfic read-aloud competition at 9:30!  11 writers get 3 minutes each to read a story, get critiqued, and compete for the top spot, yours truly included.   Last year’s stories were all fun and incredibly varied, and I’m looking forward to being part of the action this year.  Hope to see you there!
