Boskone Schedule

I'll be going to both Capricon and Boskone this year. Though Boskone is a week later, they've got their final schedules out first.(I have a preliminary idea of the Cap schedule, but they've asked us not to publicize it yet.) These are subject to change, etc., but here's what they've told me. For more up-to-date info on the programs, go to the Capricon and Boskone web sites.

Boskone, Boston, February 17-19

Saturday 10:00 - 11:00, Kaffeeklatsche: Guy Consolmagno,  Galleria-Kaffeeklatsch 1 ( Westin)   Advance sign-up at Information required; limited to 10 

Saturday 11:00 - 12:00, The Year in Astronomy, Burroughs ( Westin)   So what happened in astronomy and physics in 2011? Old mysteries solved? New mysteries found? Join us for the annual panel on the wonders of our universe!    Mark L. Olson  (M), Jeff Hecht, Guy Consolmagno

Saturday 13:00 - 14:00, Liaden Universe, Burroughs ( Westin) Sharon Lee and Steve Miller have written more than a dozen novels set in the Liaden Universe. And they have won both romance and science fiction awards for them. What inspires the fervor of the fans of this husband-and-wife writing team? Guy Consolmagno (M), Steve Miller, Sharon Lee

Saturday 16:00 - 17:00, Discarded Images: Astronomical Ideas That  Were Almost Correct, Harbor III ( Westin) Guy Consolmagno

Sunday 10:00 - 11:00, What Could Possibly Go Wrong? Science experiments you can do at home, Carlton ( Westin) Guy Consolmagno, Mark L. Olson

The Liaden Universe panel is a surprise to me -- I mentioned in an earlier post how I was too shy to go say hi to these authors when I saw them in line for breakfast at Renovation, and this is now nature's revenge -- I get to be an embarrassing fanboy in front of an audience! It should be a good introduction for the audience, because I will be asking all sorts of newly questions myself...
