Another year of Fandom Fest in books and what a weekend. Attendance, due to a venue change and celebrity guest cancellations, was WAY down. Despite it all, Hydra Publications had a great weekend and made a nice profit. I spent the weekend at the table with James C. Gillen, Arlan Andrews Sr., Dave Creek, Rachael Rawlings, Stuart Thaman and Josiah Davis. Lynn Tincher, with her almost better half Eric, were along at a table not far away. Add in Stephen Zimmer, Holly Pillippe, Marian Allen, T. Lee Harris, Sarah Deurell, Lacie Marie and Lydia and David Sherrer, and we had a fun corner.
I’d like to offer up a special thanks to the fans who came out despite all the negative press surrounding the convention to show their support for all the vendors who had no control over what went down. Thank you.
And the cos players? They were legit.
