My Boskone Schedule

It’ll be a busy weekend at Boskone (this weekend!). Bunch of panels. And I eat brains, apparently.

Friday    7pm      The Zombie Phenom — Is It Staggering Yet?
Alan F. Beck
Suzy McKee Charnas
John Langan
Faye Ringel
Paul G. Tremblay
It seems like zombies are everywhere lately: books, movie, TV,
marches, meetups … Does this phenomenon show any signs of
weakening or, you know, dying down? What would it take to kill this
zombie thing dead?

What kinds of crossover qualities make so many SF/F/H fans also like
a good mystery story?

Saturday  3pm      The Divide Between Mysteries and Fantasy-Horror

What we need are more stories with monsters other than vampires and
zombies. Let’s talk tall tales featuring leviathans, mummies,
chupacabras, kapres, killer bees, ghosts, shoggoths, golems,
hellhounds, and other denizens that lurk further off the beaten
path. Plus it would help if some of them were also on the pretty or
sexy side.

Sunday    2pm      A Good Death
Jeffrey A. Carver        (M)
James D. Macdonald
Paul G. Tremblay
Death is “the last enemy”, feared by all. Yet Tolkien’s immortal
elves call it “the One’s gift to Man”. Whether a sad ending or a
glad ending, let’s remember the most heartbreaking, surprising,
realistic, satisfying, or otherwise memorable death scenes in SF/F/H
books and movies.

    Ha!

    So far everyone (including my own) reaction to “sexy monsters” has been the same.
