After his death, NESFA decided to honor him by establishing the Hal Clement Science Speaker as a memorial. Each year we bring someone who shares his wide interest in science combined with a love of science fiction to speak at Boskone.I am pleased to say that I have been invited to be Hal Clement Science Speaker at Boskone 51, 14 through 16 February 2014, in Boston.
I am grateful for this honor, especially because I've always wanted to attend Boskone. Boston is a great city that I always love to visit. So I'm really looking forward to Valentine's Day.
