From Creation’s Grand Slam SciFi Summit guest list:
Koenig is best known for his role as Pavel Chekov in the original Star Trek tv show. He reprised his character in the following 6 Star Trek movies as well.
From Koenig’s official site:
I was quite upset to hear that Colin Ferguson, star of SciFi Channel’s Eureka wouldn’t be attending as advertised. But there are so many other great media guests scheduled at Creation’s Grand Slam SciFi Summit that I’ll still enjoy the convention.
The next person I’m most excited to see is James Marsters. Marsters, of course, is most well-known for his role as Spike in the cult show Buffy the Vampire Slayer. And more recently, he played Super-nemesis Brainiac on the CW’s Smallville. He’ll be the only actor here every day of the con.
No Thursday Thirteen this week.
As of Thursday at 4:30am, I’ll be on my way to California!
… For Creation’s Grand Slam SciFi Summit and a little fun in the sun.
I plan on bringing my laptop to upload photos from the convention each night, but who knows what the internet connection will be like. So, just to make sure the site doesn’t die during the 10 days that I’m gone… I’ll be setting articles on the different actors/actresses that will be at the con, to post on the days I can’t get online.
Things have been crazy busy for me packing and preparing for my trip tomorrow. I won’t be back till the 23rd, though I hope to keep posting from my laptop. I probably wont get to do much visiting other blogs for a couple weeks though. So, don’t think I’ve forgotten you all.
Live Free… or Die Hard!
Here’s the new trailer for the upcoming movie:
Here’s the latest email from 360i On Behalf of NBC:
Shiloh signing books for fans
I met Shiloh from Thursday Thirteen, I believe. She’s a romance author with an eclectic taste in reading. And I’ve had fun chatting with her over on her blog. So, she mentioned that she was doing a book signing here in Indy, I decided to go meet her!
Besides having the privilege to preview M.D. BenoitÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s new book Synergy and interview her today, it happens to be a very special dayÃ¢â‚¬Â¦ Happy Birthday, M.D.! Hope you have a great one!
SciFiChick: Describe your upcoming book, Synergy.
Benoit: Here is what the book blurb says:
Ã¢â‚¬Å“Cloning. Accelerated growth of replacement organs. DNA repair. In 2096, all are possible. And forbidden by law. Three people will defy these laws to save the life of eleven-year-old Zelimir, who will die a slow, painful death from a horrifying genetic disease. Zelimir’s father hires Torver Lockwood and Demetria Greyson to find a cure for his son. Both have a personal stake in this illegal research. A cure may help explain why Torver is able to see into people’s pasts and why Demetria has visions about a violent future. But, once developed, the solution could be used as a powerful weapon that can target specific genes. With the chance that the cure may fall into the wrong hands and start a new reign of terror, will Torver keep the secret to himself, at the cost of one small life?Ã¢â‚¬Â
The editors at BBT Magazine were kind enough to offer a review copy of their magazine, as well as an interview with yours truly.
SciFiChick: Tell us a little about BBT.
BBT: BBT Magazine (or Blood, Blade, and Thruster Magazine to the neophyte) is a print magazine that blends speculative fiction & satire.
Think Realms of Fantasy meets The Onion.
Think Fantasy & Science Fiction Magazine meets Mad Magazine.
Think Thomas Paine meets The Wolfman.
I’m not sure about that last one, I just like the way it sounded.
SciFiChick: Why speculative fiction and satire?
