Leaving for Dragon Con this Week

Barbara Vey -- August 29th, 2011

Thursday I leave for Dragon Con.  I have mixed emotions as I enjoy the event a lot since it is heavy on fans, but I hate the set up that has you trudging from hotel to hotel to hit all the events.  I was looking over the schedule and it looks like I’m in for a treat this year.

 

There are quite a few authors going that I already know and will be happy to reconnect with Charlaine Harris, Susan Sizemore, Sherrilyn Kenyon and Laurell K. Hamilton.  Here’s the list of attendees, so let me know if there’s anyone special I should be stalking…I mean talking to.

 

I have my dream list of celebrities I’d like to meet, but with all the rules in place at Dragon Con, I’m not sure how close I’ll get.  Carrie Fisher, Mary McDonnell, Wil Wheaton, Colin Ferguson, Eddie McClintock, Ernest Borgnine and Christopher Lloyd to name a few.  Of course, my number one pick is William Shatner, but we go way back to the very first episode of Star Trek in the 60s when my friends and I would all stay home and watch the show on Friday night before we’d go out.  Our official weekend started with Star Trek.  So, if anyone has any pull with any of my wish list, please let me know and I will be forever in your debt.  Check out the whole list and let me know if there’s anyone else that you’d like me to try to catch up with.  I’m wearing my tennies and could probably take them in a foot race.

 

Bottom Line:  I know I should be packing all my costumes, but I’ll leave that to the professionals and just plan on taking a lot of pictures instead.
