Movies

Cons

Cons are short for “conventions”, when people who rarely leave the house get together…just kidding, of course, they can be great fun.  For details, I recommend Fanboy’s Convention List.

  • Cruise Trek is a ten-day cruise (to the Iberian Peninsula) with Star Trek (and other) celebrities, although they aren’t saying who at the time of writing
  • Necromicon 29 is in Tampa, Florida (guests include David Gerrold)
