Hotel Information

Boskone History
Boskone 39


Yes, Boskone happened in Boston for the first time since 1987. There were either one or two fire alarms, but the hotel didn't take them personally... ;-> The con went pretty well, and Sharon Sbarsky now holds the record of running the world's longest Boskone.

To the surprise of absolutely no one, flights out of Boston were cancelled due to the approaching Presidents Day Blizzard. At about 9am, it finally started to snow here. After more than 12 hours, we had more than a foot of snow in downtown Boston.

This turned Boskone into Snokone, since there are about 50 of us at the Sheraton who couldn't leave Boston today as planned. We have a con suite (Sharon's room), a flyer, possible badges, a day-long program in the bar, et.c. We might have some photos as Del Cotter, John Lorenz and Bill Jensen all had cameras.

Boskone is a registered service mark of the New England Science Fiction Association, Inc.
