Here is my Boskone schedule. Some great panels, a reading, a concert, and a signing. I’m going to be busy!
Autographing: David Coe and Adam Stemple

Fandom and Neurodivergence
19 Feb 2022, Saturday 14:00 – 14:50, Burroughs (Westin)
In the early years of science fiction fandom, “fans are slang” was a rallying cry. Are fans really different from “mundanes” – and if so, how? Is this why fandom feels like a found family?

Creativity and Parenthood
19 Feb 2022, Saturday 15:00 – 15:50, Burroughs (Westin)
How can the duties and beauties of being a parent impact writers and artists? Will parenthood force creative processes to change? Does it matter how many children the creator has? Did the pandemic and lockdown(s) make creating new material in a houseful of children more difficult … or more rewarding?
Walter H. Hunt Sarah Langan, David B. Coe/ D.B. Jackson, Sara Felix (Chicon 8), Adam Stemple (M)

Confidence, Self-Doubt, and the Writer
20 Feb 2022, Sunday 13:00 – 13:50, Marina II (Westin)
“The best lack all conviction, while the worst are full of passionate intensity,” murmured Yeats, bucking himself up to write more about magic or mermaids or the Fae. (Yes, Yeats was One of Us.) Our panel (who never suffer a moment’s qualm themselves) will discuss being the best writer you can be, lulling yourself into confidence, and slaying the daily dragons of doubt.
Kenneth Schneyer (Johnson & Wales University) (M), E C Ambrose (Rocinante Books), Suzanne Palmer, Michael Swanwick, Adam Stemple
