I’ll be attending Boskone this weekend and participating in the following panels:

Defining “Science Fiction” — How and Why? Fri 20:00 – 20:50, Harbor III
Paul Di Filippo (M), Neil Clarke, Gregory Feeley, Shahid Mahmud
In a world filled with mixed genres and science that has evolved beyond science fiction tropes from the past, how do we define the genre for the future? Does it need definition?

From Soup to Nuts: The Running of a Small Press Sat 11:00 – 11:50, Harbor III
Ian Randal Strock (M), Neil Clarke, Michael J. Walsh, Shahid Mahmud
Seen as more nimble than the bigger houses within the marketplace, an increasing number of small presses are quickly carving out their niches within the SF/F/H genres. While many are run by experienced small press people, a growing percentage are led by people who may not be new to publishing, but are new to the world of running a press. Veteran small press publishers discuss the ins and outs of running things, building books, and taking titles to market.

Kaffeeklatsche Sat 17:00 – 17:50, Galleria-Discussion Group
Neil Clarke, Kate Baker

I hope to see some of you there!
