I'm going to my first SF convention in August.  The Worldcon is being held here in Spokane, and since we are a small city, I figure on being the only one there.  Its called Sasquan.  The only trouble with my thought about being the only one there is that it seems to be that everyone else is thinking the same thing.  Membership of attendees is running well ahead of recent conventions in the USA.  Its not going to match the one in London, but there are too many people attending.

I watched the original Star Trek show and never quite understood why they cancelled it.  David Gerrold is one of the Guests of Honor, he wrote the Star Trek show "The Trouble with Tribbles"  as well as some others.   I have his book about the creation of the script.  He was still in school and it was his first sale.  I'll be bring the book for him to sign.  Yet another Guest of Honor is Vondas McIntyre.  She was heavily involver with Star Trek When the editor of the Pocket Books line of Star Trek novels discovered that she was a big fan of the original series, he invited her to write an original Star Trek novel. His reaction after reading The Entropy Effect was that Paramount would either love it or hate it. They loved it, so she also wrote Enterprise (the 20th anniversary Star Trek novel) and the novel versions of the Star Trek II, III, and IV movies.


Oh, there are even 32 members from South Carolina :D

Although I live a short 40 minute drive away, I wanted to experience the late night parties and not have to drive home, so I booked a hotel.  All but one were booked a few months ago, so I had to take a new hotel that is opening in June.  Its going to be nice though, 55 in 4K TV sets in every room!  There is a Skybridge walkway to the convention center, which is nice.  I drove by it last week, they are working like crazy to finish up.  Its actually opening a week earlier than planned.

I am not the type to go in a costume, maybe a few T-shirts with SF themes.  I've been designing a Terry Pratchett themed embroidery pattern for my wife and or daughter to wear.  They both are knitting enthusiasts and Terry Pratchett fans.  I have a commercial machine that I bought as a basket case and have running pretty well.

Also, the original series was the best :) Here's 100 reasons why Kirk is better than Picard.

Wow, Wow, Wow---Thank you, Sir dear friend Mr. DominoDude---That is the Awesome  Building. May I share this Link to my Facebook ?
