E.J. Stevens' Boskone Panel and Signing Schedule

My official Boskone 55 schedule is here! Boskone, New England's longest running science fiction convention, runs from Friday, February 16th - Sunday, February 18th at the Westin Boston Waterfront in Boston, MA. I'll be speaking on panels Friday and Saturday and signing books on Saturday.

Boskone 55 E.J. Stevens Schedule Boskone 2018

E.J.'s Official Boskone 2018 Schedule


Panel: Armchair Detectives (3:00 - 4:00PM)

Crime and fiction have long been a popular pairing. But what have science and technology done to the prospects of pulling off the perfect murder? How much tricksier must authors get to keep their readers guessing, especially in this new age of the armchair detective? (Marina 1)


Panel: Feminist Fairy Tales (10:00 - 11:00AM)

Women frequently serve as the main characters of fairy tales. (Why, by the way?) It’s hard not to notice they’re often presented as victims, or the subjects of a lesson learned. Do any tales instead offer strong female role models? What can modern feminist perspectives contribute when considering stories from so long ago and/or far away? (Burroughs)

Panel: It's Not Always About Sex (12:00 - 1:00PM)

Speculative fiction is filled with friendships that turn into romantic entanglements. Is that all there is? Can’t our characters just have friends, of whatever gender, without hookups and/or heartbreaks? How about we rescue the world from the odd apocalypse or alien invasion, and forget about the sex for a change? (Harbor III)

Autographing (1:00 - 2:00PM)

I will have FREE Ivy Granger Passports while supplies last! (Galleria - Autographing)

Panel: Ensemble Casts and Continuing Characters (4:00 - 5:00PM)

Some well-written spec fic features ensemble casts where the secondary characters are as interesting as the leads. What are the guidelines for creating great supporting roles? How do these people (or aliens, AIs, disembodied demons, etc.) fascinate despite less face time? Do they get more freedom to be themselves, while main characters must be all things to all audiences? Which secondaries deserve (or have got) their own spin-off stories? (Marina 4)

Panel: The Role of Spiritual Animals in Fiction (5:00 - 6:00PM)

Animals in speculative fiction play more than the simple role of lap dogs and cozy cats. From demons to familiars, from patronuses to spirit animals, and more, these creatures often play subtle but powerful roles in the life of a story’s main character. Why are animals so important? Have their roles changed over time? Our panelists discuss our furry, feathered, and scaled friends in all of their glory. (Marina 3)

I hope to see you in Boston!

  1. I am happy to find this schedule. It's a pity I've missed this event. See you next time!

  2. I'm someone who has lived a life seemingly in the background, I must say this final indignity I have suffered almost too much to endure. You see, I have been sickly and weak since the day I was born and doomed to go through all my life a weakling. I seemed to have always suffered from one illness or another and could never play with the other children as I so desperately wanted to. Mother always made such a big fuss over me, also, making the situation worse as the other boys teased me mercilessly after they saw it. I was browsing the internet searching on how i could be transformed into a powerful when i came across the email of a man named Lord Mark. who was a VAMPIRE so I told him that I has always dreamed of becoming a VAMPIRES, All i did was just to follow the procedure that i was been told, and i bet you that procedure I took change my entire life to something i ever desire, freedom, sickness free, pains free, fame, influence, connections and even more that i can. Thanks to Lord Mark. Do you want a life full of interesting things? Do you want to have power and influence over others? To be charming and desirable? To have wealth, health, and longevity? contact the vampires creed today via email:
