Welcome to A Galaxy Called Dallas!

Located just north of downtown Garland, A Galaxy Called Dallas is your new Favorite Local Comic Shop! We carry everything a growing fanboy or fangirl needs and if we don't have it in stock, we can get it quickly. We offer a subscription service for the comics fan, an Honor Roll program for students in grades K-6, and even discount programs for teachers. Events are scheduled throughout the week and range from game nights to special interest clubs. Come see us on the southwest corner of North Garland Avenue and Belt Line Road in the North Star Crossing shopping center near Nickelrama and Sali's Pizza.

Life’s little ups and downs

It seems that I will soon have more time to put towards my blog and I’m happy, yet deathly afraid. I work(ed) for Borders Books and though our store is in the middle of liquidation, I still have a job for at least the next few weeks. (At this point in the rough draft I went on a little rant but have decided to replace it and continue on with my originally intended post.) I will be posting more frequently about local events, movies, books, comics and such that touch the genres of sci-fi, fantasy, and horror. I’ve always had the vision that this blog be a central point for people seeking info about these kind of events in the DFW area.

With this new found time, I’m hoping to enlist folks, like you reading this, into helping me finding more topics to write about. If you know of events that others may enjoy or something that your excited about, send me an email (you can see it at the upper-right hand of the page) and I’ll do a little write up on it.

I’m also looking to do more reviews of books and movies. I will be going back over award lists, such as the Hugo’s and Nebula’s from years past, reading them and offering my view on what made them a winner or asking the question, “What were the voters thinking?” In movies, I will find lesser known or obscure movies and give you my take on them.

With the lack of a job, I will be looking at ways to monetize the site. If you are already a reader of this blog, you may find it annoying in some way, and I can understand. But, I’ve got to do something to pay bills. My wife has a medical condition that will follow her until her dying days and we have a little one to feed, clothe, and educate. This is my passion. Talking about things that I love or find interesting. So, if you don’t like the ads, please look past them and continue to visit. I will probably also dabble in affiliate marketing, but I promise to not make it so unavoidable as to make your reading experience a chore. Also, look to my eBay store that I will be working on over the next week or two. Lots of books, posters, games, and other assorteds that I cannot house in this small apartment. I will provide that link in another post when I get it up and running.

I want to make this your first place to visit when your looking for something fun to do or just want to know what’s going on in the genres. So, let me know what you like, don’t like, want to hear more about or see, or just to say “Hey!”
