Houston’s Apollocon 2013 Starts Tomorrow

For the 10th year, Apollocon will be bringing some big names in science fiction, fantasy, and horror. Sponsored by the Houston Science Fiction Association, it brings together fans and creators of all these genres.

Bradley Dentonimage0Guest of Honor will be award-winning author Bradley Denton will be attending. I would have loved to have made this trip and gotten him to sign my copy of Buddy Holly Is Alive and Well on Ganymede. It would seem that they have decided to make this one into a movie with Napolean Dynamite, Jon Heder, himself.

 

Jon DeNardo of SF SignalYou might recognize the Fan Guest of Honor. He is none other than John DeNardo of SF Signal. SF Signal was chosen as Best Literary Blog by SFX Magazine in 2011. In 2012, his website was nominated for two Hugo Awards, winning the award for Best Fanzine. While doing a weekly column for Kirkus Reviews, the man barely has enough time to breathe.

 

If you get to go, be sure and come back here and tell us some stories of your trip.
