What I’m excited about
1 Khal Drogo and Hodor….
Well, not the characters, but the actors who portray them in Game of Thrones will be at Space City Con.
Jason Momoa and Kristian Nairn.
Miltos Yerolemou (who plays Syrio Forel, Arya Stark’s Fencing instructor)
Finn Jones (Loras Tyrell, the Night of Flowers) and Gethin Anthony (Renly Baratheon)
Though, actually, Space City Con has quite the guest list this time:
Bruce Boxleitner(Tron), Gil Gerard(Buck Rogers), Tommy Pietch (an amazing Make-up Artist), Jerry Doyle, Felix Silla, Jason Carter, Robin Atkins Downes, Wendy Braun, Marshall Teague… the list is enormous.
2. Brent Weeks…
I read his Night Angel trilogy earlier this year, and I must say, it was fascinating work.
I really got into the tale of the assassin Kylar Stern and his adventures.
3. Getting to see my new and old friends from previous conventions..
I’ll have the chance to see not only my old friends from the Houston Browncoats, but my new ones from the Houston Harry-Potter Meet up, and the South West Louisina Browncoats (or, as my husband calls them, Space Western Lovers of the Alliance).
4. Frankenstein’s monster
I wrote a review of the film here… but I’m excited to see it on a screen larger than my laptop.
5. Mechcorp Challenges
Raising Money for Kids Need to Read, the convention’s charity of choice
The Browncoats will kick someone’s butt again.
*cough* I mean…. As a member of the press, and therefore required to remain neutral, I am excited to see how much money is raised for this amazing charity by the wonderful fan group mech battles.
