attention star trek fans - i'll be at the grand slam in pasadena next week

I just realized that the Grand Slam convention in Pasadena is coming up in just ten days, running from the 10th until the 12th at the Pasadena Convention center.

I haven't done any conventions since this show last year, because I didn't feel like I had any new material, I thought it made sense to take a break from cons, yadda, yadda, yadda, but since I have Just A Geek: The Audio Book, and some advance material on Do You Want Kids With That? I thought it made sense to attend this show.

I also thought it would be a fantastic and unique opportunity to do a Star Trek podcast, with interviews of anyone I could talk to, as well as an audio diary of my experiences at the show.

So I gave Adam at Creation a call, and even though it's super last minute, he added me to the schedule. I doubt I'll be doing anything up on stage (everything is booked already) but there's a chance I may sneak on to introduce someone, or do something cool.

Hope to see some of you there!

Wish I could be there!

Coming to Seattle anytime soon, or ever?

Good luck with the Convention Wil. The last Convention I saw you live you were up on the stage. The guy who gave the intro for you did such a fantastic job.

Totally off subject, Anxiously awaiting the next Radio Free Burrito broadcast.

And beware red balloons and butterflies.

Drat...and I'm stuck here in the Midwest. In any case, hope you have a blast, and I'm looking forward to your new book. Finally finished the other two and adored them. You've got a great style of writing and it's easy to identify with you. So, until then, I've got some S. Gaiman I bought off eBay to help out a friend to peruse. Have a good evening!

sorry about that...got used to LiveJournal where I could edit posts.

Yes! I look forward to that podcast!

I don't suppose you could do some fan interviews or something like that. Help us get a feel for what it's like to be Wil at a convention?

Any chance of you coming to Houston?! PLEASE!!!

Hey Wil, why don't you just do a tour--we would all love to see you! Just be sure to add New Hampshire to your venues!

I can't wait for the podcast, Say hi to a random Klingon for me and have fun!

You HAVE to do the Vegas convention. Two years ago - when you ran into Brent Spiner's time and he came in and interrupted? Oh man. Best. Moment. Ever.

I'm serious. I'll miss you if you aren't there, and then I'll cry. And then how will you feel?

What are the odds of you coming to Ft Hood, Texas?? Actually, I'm with LadyBug with the Houston thing. I'll drive the 3 hours to see you in Houston! Any chance?

Tee hee. You took over Spiner's time. MAN I wish I had been there! I hope that you have fun at the convention Wil. Give the old gang some hell. ;)

The good news: I will be in L.A. the weekend of the con. The bad news: I won't get there until late Saturday night, and I'm committed on Sunday, so I won't get to the convention. Oh well, have a great time there! Sorry I'll miss it.

Wow, I'd just about kill to get a sneak at Do You Want Kids With That? That's my life, married, 3 step kids that were 2,4,5 and when I inherited them.

Good luck Wil, enjoy it! If you every set up preorders for the book, I'm there, instantly.

Dude, geek, man-dude! That's awesome, good for you for stepping up to go! I will definitely give it a go and try and make it. I'd love my son to meet you and I think it's high time he see me geek out at a Trek Con :)

WoW, I just looked at the Con page-- over $60 for an autrographed Frakes. I got mine for free during Season 5!

Wil, which days are you going to be there, all of 'em?

DUDE! That has to be the hawesomest idea EVER!

Please let us know when you will be there. I was thinking of getting tickets for Sunday and seeing Jonathan Frakes, will you be around Sunday? I'd love to catch you.

Thanks!

Hey man-guy-dennis-dude! Try South Florida for a change. My bribe still stands... I'll buy you a couple of Guinesses. And I'll also introduce you to Seminole Indian Gambling. (Or should I say "Native American Seminole Nation Casinos"?) There's lot's to do down here, like: dodging hurricanes, beating up the homeless, and reading War and Peace while waiting for the traffic on I-95 to move more than a foot (though I suppose your used to that sorta thing). Not to mention (but I guess I am mentioning it): we gots the best damned Cuban food anywhere outside of Havana. For true.

Since you MENTIONED Star Trek, I don't feel bad for bringing this up.

I was watching Spike last week, and they were airing TNG re-runs (big surprise). And I saw the episode where Wesley and some girl he was interested in (Robin?) re-took the ship from a "game" that had been used to brainwash the crew.

I find it interesting that the writers were able to so accurately prophecy the release of World of Warcraft so many years before it was even conceived. LOL.

I'll add a vote with Ladybug for you coming to Houston (actually any place in TX - Dallas would be better for me)

Wil, I don't know if it is too early to tell, but do you know of any cons taking place this November? Because I plan on going to SoCal then and, if possible, I would love to go to a con and meet you. : )

I'm anxious for you to finish "Do You Want Kids With That". I just know it'll be awesome!

London, London, London,
Get your backside over to LONDON.

Man definitely wish I could attend. Yes I am a star trek fan and yes WESLEY WAS my FAVE char growing up, Data was second. So I do hope to attend ONE convention in my lifetime.
When I was in vegas, the star trek experience was a blast, but a convention would round everything out.

Kill 'em, Boss!
