A beautifully told story with colorful characters out of epic tradition, a tight and complex plot, and solid pacing. -- Booklist, starred review of On the Razor's Edge

Great writing, vivid scenarios, and thoughtful commentary ... the stories will linger after the last page is turned. -- Publisher's Weekly, on Captive Dreams

TOF at Boskone

TOF's Schedule at Boskone, as of today:

Saturday 10:00 - 11:00, Creating Alien Characters, Harbor I (Westin)
        From the outside, how do we create alien species that are
        not just giant X or sentient Y -- like big ants or smarter
        cats?  From the inside, how do we even conceive  mentation
        that is fundamentally nonhuman, rather than just like us
        with an obsession for Z -- like money, honor, or status?
Saturday 13:00 - 14:00, Kaffeeklatsche: Michael F. Flynn
        Advance sign-up at Information required; limited to 10
Saturday 15:00 - 16:00, Autographing: Michael F. Flynn,
Saturday 17:00 - 18:00, Return of the Stagirite -- or Aristotle's Revenge
        Aristotle's notions are being resurrected with a fresh coat
        of paint and a new label.
Sunday 10:00 - 10:30, Reading: Michael F. Flynn
