The Writer’s Block: The Other Side of the Convention Table

I do a lot of conventions. It’s a great way to meet new readers, get my face and books out there, and yes, stalk celebrities. But conventions aren’t all fun and games. It can be exhausting greeting and talking with people for three days straight, and I’ll admit, by Day 3, I’m not at my […]

Sci Fi Saturday Night Presents: My Peculiar Family

Over the years we have showcased many KickStarter projects. Our new project, My Peculiar Family, combines the amazing talents of writers and artists who are friends of our show. The idea for this anthology has been knocking around for about 4 years. I talked about it with a bunch of writers over the years and after a […]

GraniteCon 2013 Video Blog #5 – Blair Shedd

You know him from his work on the Doctor Who and Dorothy Of Oz comics. SFSN fans know him from his attendance at cons all over the country.

GraniteCon 2013 Video Blog #4 – Hollaback Boston

Brandi, a representative of Hollaback Boston, dropped by our booth. As the discussion progressed we all thought this was a message we should pass along  so we started over with the cameras rolling. This is information every Con attendee should know. [youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q7FYADZ9zLg]

GraniteCon 2013 Video Blog #3 – Jim Cummings, Jess Harnell and Rob Paulson

A few candid minutes with some of the many voice artists in attendance. Dome got a quiet moment with them that quickly degenerated into comic chaos. Jim (Darkwing Duck, Winnie the Pooh) and Jess (Wakko Warner) gave us a few moments of their down time and what was a few questions quickly became the mayhem […]

GraniteCon 2013 Video Blog #2 – Rob Paulson

Rob Paulson wanted to be a hockey player. Lucky for us all , that didn’t work out. The iconic voice that gave us Yakko Warner, Pinky and literally hundreds of others sits down with The Dome in the middle of the Con. His Talking Toons podcast is one fans should not miss.

Boston Status Update

It’s been a horrific and taxing week for everyone here in Massachusetts and the entire country. Unfortunately due to the standoff between the Boston Marathon bombing suspect (#2), and police that has been ongoing all day, as of now, Boston Comic Con has been postponed until the “not too distant future”. Everyone in the SFSN […]

NAUTICON launches on a successful maiden voyage!

The weekend of May 18-20 saw the premiere of NAUTICON, a 21+ con held right on the tip of Cape Cod at the Provincetown Inn.  Comics, cosplay, anime, sci-fi and fantasy all came together for a weekend of high-octane drinking and low-key debauchery.   Before I go any further, let’s get this out of the way:  […]

Watch City Festival 2012: Jean-Christophe Valtat

In this far too brief interview, I spoke with Jean-Christophe Valtat, noted international science fiction author and teacher, world’s leading authority on Jules Verne, and keynote speaker at the 2012 The Watch City Festival. We talked about how Jules Verne’s works were the predecessors of Steampunk and Verne’s influence on modern science fiction. You can find […]
