This very minute the weary meetup goers are headed to find some stew at the last outpost of the weekends activities while others slowly gather themselves for the long voyage home.

All About Andromeda

The Andromeda Galaxy as seen by Terry Hancock from Michigan (with permission) Andromeda.

Aaron Douglas At Dallas All-Con [Spoiler Alert]

Audra and I were lucky enough to catch Aaron Douglas at the Dallas All-Con event today, and greatly enjoyed his Saturday panel. For those of you who haven’t seen Mr. Douglas in person, he’s very fan-accessible, affable, and entertaining. Some interesting (and possibly very slightly spoilericious) facts gleaned from his talk: He indicated that BSG […]
