So I went to the Salt Lake Comic Con FanX last week and this is what happened:
As I walked around (or even as I sat at my booth) I kept thinking it was like I was living someone else’s life. But someone cool. Far cooler than I. Did I tell you Patrick Stewart and William Shatner and Ioan Gruffud were there? And the whole cast (almost) of Star Trek TNG? And Adam Baldwin? And NATHAN FILLION? Shazam. Well, not Shazam. He couldn’t make it. Not even one Shazam costume did I spot. But the line to see Studio C was about 10,000 people long. And the line to get books signed by Brandon Sanderson was at least 750 people long (which is why I couldn’t stand in it. I had to dash off to be on a panel with … Richard Paul Evans.) (Am I name dropping? I most certainly am.)
I can’t believe I got to have this experience. What a ride. Many thanks to my college friend Blake Casselman for making it happen. Really appreciate the invitation and the kindness!
It might be my only trip to Comic Con EVER, but if so, it was something I’ll never forget.
