On Hal Clement, Valentine's Day, and Boston

Hal Clement was one of the great science fiction writers, and an enthusiastic participant in programming at SF conventions. His talent in explaining and speculating about science, which fans experienced in reading his fiction and hearing him at cons, reminded us that he must have been very good at his vocation as a high school science teacher.

The New England Science Fiction Association writes:
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.
