Last month, sci-fi fans descended on Boston’s Westin Waterfront Hotel for Boskone–” the longest-running science fiction convention in New England!”
As in previous years, Bokone 54 featured gaming, demos, a speculative art show, readings, panels, “filking,” kids’ activities, and the opportunity to meet some of the premier authors and artists in the field.
