Off To Fandom Fest

News 2 Comments

With a bit of trepidation for the weather, I’ll admit!  104 degrees Fahrenheit?  Louisville, what are you thinking????

But balancing that is huge excitement for the ‘umbrella’ event that covers fantasy, SF, Manga, Anime, movies, costuming, horror, movies, film making and, well, everything that makes life fun and exciting!  There is a 30 page guide to the event, to give you an idea of how many things are going on.

And movie stars galore!  Bruce Campbell!!

If you are curious, take a peek here at the Fandom Festival Site. 

I’m off to a fabulous weekend.

SciFiNow Interview

News 4 Comments

SciFiNow is, as it bills itself, the Premier  Sci Fi, Fantasy, Horror and Cult TV website.  It’s published in the UK, and I was honored when they asked if they could interview me.  It’s available as both an e-zine or a print magazine.  I was very pleased with the quality of questions they came up with; there were several I’d never been asked before.  I hope you’ll enjoy it.
