While I've got a few minutes, it seems like a good time to mention that I'll be appearing this coming weekend, Saturday and Sunday, at FALLCON in Minnesota. For those keeping score at home, this is my third year in a row attending. I've had a great time the first two years so it makes me wonder what kind of charm the third will be.
This is Fallcon's big 20th anniversary show and it seems like they're blowing the roof off in terms of their guest list. Even Tomasi is making a rare convention appearance for the show which--I believe--has been moved to a bigger venue to accomodate (sp?) the larger crowds they're expecting. And of course, my beloved Minnesota Wrecking Crew will be out in full force and I'm looking forward to catching up with the boys.
Last year, I remember the show being ridiculously hot and humid which seemed ironic, seeing as it's Minnesota in October. I remember Moira showed me the coolest letter ever, a reply she got from Julie Schwartz when she was younger. And how can I forget Lewis (and his hat), who I enjoyed chatting with off and on over the course of the weekend. Who knows what kind of memories this year will bring? Prince Valiant (he better be there)? Mud wrestling (my money is on Mahnke!)? A wedding ceremony (I believe a couple is actually being married after the show on Saturday). I guess you'll have to be there to find out with me!
Seriously, Nick Post puts on a great show. Hope to see you there. I'll update next week with pics and maybe an announcement or two.
Thanks for reading,
