Neil Gaiman signed my one dollar bill

Some time in the early 1990s, I was fortunate enough to meet Neil Gaiman at DragonCon in Atlanta.  He was super-cool and was kind enough to really speak with the fans that were waiting in line for his autograph (not just the lip service some famous people provide).

Star Wars Resume – Vintage Action Figures

I’ve had Star Wars on the brain lately.  My fanaticism normally cycles like a washing machine through: comics, Doctor Who, Star Wars, Star Trek, and then starts over again with comics.  Seems like I’ve been firmly in the Star Wars spin cycle for a while now.  I’m nearly finished with the ninth novel in the […]
