Author Jeremy Flagg’s Boskone Schedule
Friday 20:00 – 21:00, Marina 2 (Westin)
If print is dead, then printed magazines are. But, at least in our genres, they’re going strong as online magazine and perhaps we should include blogs and both audio and video podcasts. What is the future of the magazine online and in any mutation or combination? And what does this mean for the journalist/writer?
Panel: Jeremy Flagg (M), Robert B. Finegold M.D., Julie C. Day, Ken Altabef, Neil Clarke
The Perfect Teenage Hero
Saturday 11:00 – 12:00, Harbor III (Westin)
Teenage heroes are not just relatively younger adults. They are people who step up to save the world — perhaps because of their youthful enthusiasm, not-yet-dimmed idealism, and unique perspectives. What does it take for a young Harry Potter, Percy Jackson, or Katniss Everdeen to emerge? What experiences change them? To what extent are they just pieces in older players’ games? Can they really do it on their own?
Panel: Ken Altabef (M), Jeremy Flagg, Tamora Pierce, Lauren Roy, Erin M. Hartshorn
Saturday 15:00 – 16:00, Galleria (Westin)
Jeremy Flagg, James Patrick Kelly, Jo Walton, C. S. E. Cooney
New England: The Legend, The Lore, The Mystery
Saturday 17:00 – 18:00, Marina 3 (Westin)
New England is often a setting in speculative fiction. What is it about this place that makes it so full of wonder … and dread? It’s a magical location beyond the page or screen. Let’s talk about the real mysteries, legends, lore, and supernatural goings-on here in New England.
Panel: Peter Muise (M), Theodora Goss, John Langan, Jeremy Flagg, F. Brett Cox

The _Sense8_ Sensation
Sunday 13:00 – 14:00, Marina 4 (Westin)
It’s shot on locations worldwide and produced by the creators of The Matrix and Babylon 5, yet this Netflix TV original has largely flown under the radar. (Still, season 2 starts in March.) Panelists examine the intricate storytelling and dizzyingly diverse connections of this sens8tionally groundbreaking SF show. From gender, race, and religion to the struggle of coming to terms with one’s identity, Sense8 treats its subjects in ways network television would never touch. SPOILERS ABOUND for nonviewers, but why not sneak a peek anyway?
