My Boskone Schedule
I have my final schedule for Boskone, which will be held February 17-19 in Boston! Here’s where you can find me:
Friday, 7 PM, Marina 3
Gritty, grim fiction fiction and suspense are natural bedfellows. What is it about their synergy that works so well, especially in video and film? How do you walk the line between mystery and suspense when there are monsters tearing their way through the plot? And how do the tropes within dark fantasy, science, and horror help generate or amplify those nail-biting moments that keep viewers from looking away from the screen during those moments of do or die?
Mike Allen (moderator), Nicholas Kaufmann, John Langan, Toni L.P. Kelner/Leigh Perry, Stephan Ward
Saturday, 1 PM, Marina 2
Writing and submitting inevitably means stories will be rejected. Some writers find it easy to keep going in the face of rejection, while others don’t. We discuss techniques for keeping up one’s spirits during the struggle toward your first or next publication. Pros share their clever anecdotes and real-life tales of woe when it comes to tragic turn downs. Through the laughter and the tears, you may even pick up a few tips and tricks to increase your chances and avoid the “rejectomancy” spiral of doom.
Marisca Pichette (moderator), Esther Friesner, Ian Randal Strock, John Langan, Nicholas Kaufmann
Saturday, 5:30 PM, Griffin
Our group reading will feature five horror authors who will each read from one of their published or in-process works. They will also host an author Q&A as time permits.
Nicholas Kaufmann (moderator), Max Martinelli, F. Brett Cox, Suzanne Reynolds-Alpert, Bracken MacLeod
Hope to see you there!
