With no power comes no responsibility

Any geeks out there?

If you’re a true, serious geek, and you live in the Toronto area, then chances are you know about that Fan Expo event that’s happening this weekend at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre.

Lots of interesting famous people gonna be there. The Shatner, for one. David Cronenberg, for another. Also Peter Mayhew, better known to the masses as Chewbacca, and to princesses as This Walking Carpet. And Stan Lee, and a bunch of folks from the 1960s Batman show, and Spike from Buffy, and one of those Star Trek alien guys with the forehead wrinkles, and a lot of other dudes whom I don’t know because I don’t watch enough TV these days.

That alone should persuade you to come. But if you’re looking for a sweet little cherry on top of the geek-heil sundae… I’ll be there too.

Yes, just as I did last year, I’ll be manning the Burning Effigy Press table part-time at the Rue Morgue Festival of Fear, along with Monica S. Kuebler and Claire Horsnell. Please stop by our table, say hi and buy a bunch of books or chapbooks. We’ve got a few new titles to show off, as well as some older ones you might not have yet. And I’ll also be selling copies of my CD, Clown with a Coat Hanger.

Just like those big celebrities at Fan Expo, I’ll be perfectly happy to sign autographs. You can even take a picture with me, if you really want. Best of all, I won’t be charging, like, $40 for the privilege. Even though I need the money far more than those other guys do, hey, I’m good like that.

Nobody’s asked me to do a forum or Q&A, though. Maybe I need to slay more vampires first.

Live long and prosper, Captain Solo.

    I kinda wish I could go, but I think my husband would be terrified if I unleashed my inner geek….
