2010 Locus Award Finalists

The 2010 Locus Award finalists have been announced and (much to my surprise) Clarkesworld is a finalist in the magazine category! "Spar" by Kij Johnson also made the list in the short story category.

YAY!!

Thanks to everyone that voted for us. It means a lot to me.

My Boskone Schedule

I’ve been to Boskone a few times and have always had a great time there. This year will be a little different for me. It’s the first time I’m attending as a program participant. I’ve been on the program at several conventions now, but I still have a hard time wrapping my mind around it. It’s just… weird.

Here’s my schedule:

Friday 8pm Harbor 3: How is the Internet Changing What We Read?
Scott Andrews, Neil Clarke, Justine Graykin (m), James Patrick Kelly, Teresa Nielsen Hayden

With hundreds of genre releases every year, fans are constantly looking for what to read, and sometimes more importantly, what to avoid. How are blogs and discussion forums and yes, even advertising affecting your reading habits? Do the personal opinions and politics of an author cause you to buy their books or avoid them like the swine flu? Does internet popularity and word-of-mouth translate into actual sales?
 

Saturday 1pm Lewis: The Market(s) for Short Fiction
Neil Clarke (m), Elaine Isaak, Alexander Jablokov, James Patrick Kelly

Magazines, anthologies, the web? Find out where the short stuff sells, and how to get a piece of the action.

Sunday 10am Harbor 3: 25 Things I Learned from SF
Ginjer Buchanan, Neil Clarke, Michael F. Flynn, Lawrence M. Schoen, Steven H Silver (m)

How much of what you know did you get from science fiction? Chromatophores and Kuiper belts, tesseracts and teratogens — what Newton dreamt and how anarchy might work — we’ve all received numberless infodumps. What are your favorites? Your most exotic. How has science fiction shaped your life, your worldview, and the cool stuff you spout at parties?

 

Sunday 11am Lewis: SF/F/H Sites to See (Before You Die): E Publishing and Online Media
Scott Andrews (m), Neil Clarke, James Patrick Kelly

More on the electronic market for short fiction – but also discusses other on- line resources (for readers, writers, and fans) available on the information superhighway…..

Hope to see some of you there!
