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.

The Passing of A. C. Crispin

I didn’t get a chance to mention this last week due to being on the road, but A. C. Crispin passed away on September 5, 2013.

A C Crispin as a pirateThough I have a few of her novels, titles fail me, I do remember enjoying them. I read several pieces penned in her memoriam and realized that she had written much more than I was aware. Her first novel was YESTERDAY’S SON in 1983 for the Star Trek franchise. She continued to write tie-in novels and did so well that this year she was named a Grandmaster by the International Association of Media Tie-In Writers.

I will have to put her on my list of authors to read. In doing so, what book would you suggest I start with?
