What a weekend! It started Friday with a gun battle at StarFest/HorrorFest 2007 here in Denver. Klingons versus Empire Stormtroopers. Fortunately I had my blaster pistol (from the Roswell UFO crash) and gave those stormtroopers a megadose of Federation justice. (Hey, Klingon chicks and Orion slave girls can be very appreciative.) After the mayhem died down, I signed books with Carrie Vaughn
, the queen of talkshow werewolves.
The hotel was parade of great costumes: old school Transformers, Star Trek (yeah!), Star Wars (boo!), Harry Potter, vampires, those appreciative green Orion slave girls, pirates, Ghostbusters, and acres of cleavage! (sorry, no photos because my camera fogged up) Big thanks to Chloe and Kathy for the wonderful hospitality.
Sunday I played host to visiting author Richelle Mead
from Seattle. We signed at the Denver Book Mall with our own Jeanne Stein
. Richelle and Jeanne are going to hobnob this week at the Romantic Times conference in Texas. Wish them luck and easy hangovers. Last night, I gave Richelle and her husband Michael the nickel tour of Denver: dinner at Hizzoner Hickenlooper's restaurant, the Wynkoop Brewing Company, followed by jazz at the Pavillions and karaoke at Charlie Brown's.
It was a late, late night of fun and check out what Richelle has to say in her private diary
