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.

WorldCon 71 / LoneStarCon 3 Day 4–Hugo Awards

These are the continuing journeys of me, James Pickering, and Les Webster of The Fellowship of the Geeks, as we ply the crowds at our first 71st World Science Fiction Convention or known as Lone Star Con 3!

IMG_2489Again, it’s another late night, but we had so much fun. The Hugo Awards are a once in a lifetime event, but I am truly going to try and do this again. I seriously could do this for the rest of my life. To be in the same room with so much talent is just a great experience.

 

Congratulations to all the winners, which I will list below. We’ve got one more day and I’ve got to prepare for it. Good night.
