At Rhode Island Comic Con this Weekend!

RI ComicCon Logo

I’ll be signing at the Rhode Island Comic Con this Saturday and Sunday, November 3 and 4, with fellow New England Horror Writers David Price, Stacey Longo (Malicious Deviance), Charles Day (Evil Jester Press, Legend of the Pumpkin Thief), Scott Goudsward (Shadows Over New England), and Rob Watts (Huldufolk).

The event will run on Saturday from 10 to 7 and Sunday from 10 to 5 at the Rhode Island Convention Center, 1 Sabin Street, Providence, and promises to be quite the weekend: in addition to vendors and celebrity signings, the schedule’s crammed with face painting, costume/cosplay contests, video game tournaments, Magic: The Gathering and Pokemon Tournaments, panels, and even a kids’ room. Movie cars include the Dukes of Hazzard’s General Lee, the Ghostbusters Wagon, the Delorean from Back to the Future, and more.

Celebrities include a mega-list for those in my age-range: Buck Rogers! Chewbacca! Q! Holly from Land of the Lost! Major Don West from Lost in Space! But wait for it: I go to lots of cons and don’t usually bother meeting the celebrities (most of the time it’s because I’m too old to know who any of these people are). But this time around, that won’t be the case. Nine members of the cast of the original Battlestar Galactica will be there, including Dirk Benedict! If you knew me as a seven-year-old, then you know what a big deal that is: Battlestar was my favorite show. Well, until The A-Team came along. Now, NOW we are cooking with gas! But the big question is, do I bring my Battlestar Galactica board game or my original TV tie-in? I guess it all depends on how geeky I want to get, right? See you in line!
