Welcome to A Galaxy Called Dallas!


For 10 years A Galaxy Called Dallas has had a presence in the DFW area and specifically in the Garland area these last four years.

Begun in 2009 as a hobby blog, it eventually morphed into A Galaxy Called Dallas Comics located north of Downtown Garland, but has now closed.

We now return to our roots as a blog about the Geek Community in DFW but especially in the areas around Garland.

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!”
