No time to say goodbye, hello!

Boskone is over! it was pretty fun.

Yesterday I met Justine Graykin in person for the first time. Justine’s story Archimedes Nesselrode appeared in our Humor issue back in April. And today I met Scott Andrews, whose story Keeli’s Ordeal is in the current issue: Scott is Editor-In-Chief of the terrific ezine Beneath Ceaseless Skies. We also got to say hi again to Walter Hunt; Walter contributed to the Alternate History issue (and his daughter Aline had a review in issue 10).

There were some great panels, too: ib>Technology T/o/d/a/y Tomorrow, Global Events, Local Effects?: Climate Change, SF/F/H Sites to See (Before You Die): E Publishing and Online Media, and Believable Relationships stick out. (One big problem throughout Boskone was a lack of microphones, or mics that just didn’t work; we walked out of a couple panels because we couldn’t hear a word they were saying.)

The dealer area was pretty neat; the M.I.T. Science Fiction Society was selling old issues of Asimov’s, F&SF, Analog, Galaxy, etc., for 25 cents each! Kay and I each found issues from the month we were born. We happened to walk by the Bruce Coville table as Coville himself was there; Kay’s loved his books for a long time, and went a bit fangirl when he signed copies of Goblins in the Castle and My Teacher Is an Alien to our son Baz.

Also, the Con suite had a ton of delicious breads that had been donated, and they were begging people to take some home because there was no way they’d use it all. So we have a bunch of tasty bread to eat!
