My publisher, Bold Strokes books, had a table at Bent-Con which took place this past weekend.
Two Bold Strokes books authors I met over the weekend — Jess Faraday (Turnbull House) and Daniel Kelly (Rise of the Thing Down Below).
Andrew Peters. He wrote the book The Seventh Pleiade. Andrew told me all about Manhattan and what it’s like to live in New York City. He’s very uptown. (My book The Odd Fellows is right in the center of the table.)
This is one of the panels I was on.
The Individual vs. Society panel. I got up to take the picture. That’s my empty seat on the right.
A panel I moderated.
I did not get a picture of the panel I moderated but this guy, E. Robert Dunn, was on my panel. I was so glad he was there because I could ask him a question and he would run with it. Afterward, I found out that he knows a great deal about Space 1999 with Barbara Bain, the Gil Gerard Battlestar Galactica and most importantly, Dr. Smith and Lost in Space. If you ever want an opinion on Lost in Space or Dr. Smith this is the guy to go to. My instincts tell me he would be a great friend.
David Holly (The Raptures of Time) and I spent some time (Saturday night between 5:00 pm and 8:30 pm) manning the Bold Strokes books booth. David had me take pictures of him with various attendees. David is the guy in the middle.
David Holly with a space alien (?) and the Joker.
This is something that came up to our booth.
This guy has lots of personality. He’s also very patriotic.
OMG! It’s Wonder Woman!
uh, various super heroes.
One’s a tree. I don’t know what the other one is supposed to be. A raccoon? They make a cute couple.
He was one of the LA Condom guys. They were giving away free condoms.
That’s the son from Land of the Lost. I told the reptile that I wanted to get a picture of him. He said, “I don’t have my pants on.” I looked and he was right. I had seen him walking around in reptile bottoms but he was just wearing white shorts at the table. I told him, “I’ll photograph you from the waist up.”
She’s a glamazon.
From left to right: Jess, Xavier, David and Andrew. I met Xavier on the last day and felt an immediate bond with him because his favorite film is Gone With the Wind, he’s a fan of Vivien Leigh and he likes Waterloo Bridge.
My book, The Odd Fellows, was released on December 16, 2013.
