Call for Volunteers: Boskone
Now, asyouknowBob, February is the Silver Anniversary Month of the Liaden Universe®. We’re going to be doing some web-celebrating, and we’ll also be hosting a party at Boskone. It is with the latter that we need some help.
Specifically, we need somebody who can go to Costco or the grocery store or whatever works in Boston with a list and money (provided by the authors). Alternatively, someone local with a car who can drive author(s) to Costco/grocery/whatever works on Friday afternoon and help with the schlepping.
Also! we need someone to help with the party itself, including possibly occupying a room on the party floor.
If you can help with any of this, please drop Steve a note at kinzelATkorvalDOTcom
