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.

Keeping Up With The Cons!

Due to vehicle problems and other of life’s little ups and downs, I’m running short on writing time, but I did want to get this out there, just in case you haven’t heard. This is a really busy weekend in Texas.

It’s being held at the Hilton Anatole and actually starts today and runs through Sunday, August 4th. Click the QuakeCon 2013 link to get more info. I’ve got a friend that helps set up the servers and other assorteds and he basically takes a vacation every year at this time, just to volunteer. Must be a pretty big deal!

Another big event is the STARFLEET International Conference being held at the MCM Elegante Hotel at Northwest Highway and I-35. The theme is “The Year of the Phoenix.” You can get more info about that at STARFLEET International Conference 2013.

We, next, head out of town and stop in Austin for the Austin Board Game Bash. It runs August 2 – 4 and is a weekend-long board gaming throwdown. It will be held at the Hilton Garden Inn just off of I-35 and 5th street.

Sylvester McCoy as Doctor WhoAnd last, but not least, Space City Con in Houston has got a guest list a mile long. From authors to artists to celebrities to fan groups, there’s plenty to see here. Robert Picardo is Master of Ceremonies and Sylvester McCoy, wizard and Time Lord, head the list and there is no reason not to have a good time. Check out the Space City Con Guest List.
