Mysterion is at Boskone this weekend!

Come see us at Boskone this weekend (February 15-17)! Boskone is the longest-running science fiction & fantasy convention in New England, held at the Westin Waterfront Hotel in Boston.
Join more than 1,200 fans and pros who love SF & fantasy for a weekend filled with panels, readings, kids activities, demonstrations, small-group discussions, filksinging, videos, games and more!
We're not doing a party this year, but Kristin and Donald will both be there, and Kristin will be on three panels and also doing a reading of her own fiction.
Here's Kristin's schedule:

Your Own Doomsday: Speculating on Future Catastrophes

Friday, 3:00 pm, Harbor III
There are lots of ways to end the world, end humanity, or end civilization. Perhaps you agree with T.S. Eliot: “This is the way the world ends … Not with a bang but a whimper.” A multidisciplinary team will tackle this grim (but enjoyable?) subject and speculate about the worlds to come … after ours ends.
Robert V.S. Redick, Rebecca Roanhorse, Kristin Janz, MR Richardson (Room 10 Publishing), Tonia Thompson (NIGHTLIGHT Podcast)

Surviving the Review

Saturday, 10 am, Marina 4
Reviews are apparently inescapable parts of the writing process, and may often (sometimes?) be critical to the life of a speculative fiction work. What must authors know about reviews? For the average writer, does the fear of public disrespect and rejection balance against the possible joy of a positive review? Should you ever try to respond to a review, good or bad? What role do fans play in reviews? And what are some of the best places to post, read, and find useful reviews?
David McDonald, Alan Brown, Kristin Janz, Victoria Sandbrook, Elizabeth Hand

Guilty Pleasures

Saturday, 12 pm, Marina 4
The Smurfs! B movies! All that goofy jazz. Certain entertainments or activities give us great personal gratification. But somehow, we’re just a bit ashamed to admit that we like My Little Pony… or bowling … or mud wrestling. Hear participants reveal their guilty pleasures, and why they indulge.
Sarah Jean Horwitz, Batya “The Toon” Wittenberg, Steven Popkes, Suzanne Palmer, Kristin Janz


Sunday, 1:30 pm, Independence
