White Rocket 023: DragonCon Memories with Keith DeCandido
This week Van is joined by Keith RA DeCandido, famed author of many STAR TREK (and other movie/TV) novels and comics, to walk down memory lane–or rather to walk through the Hyatt Regency, Marriott Marquis, and Peachtree Street–as they recount their favorite DragonCon memories.
So put on your best Stormtrooper armor, share a hotel room with twelve other people, and enjoy!

Two members of the Earth Station One crew will be making appearances in a couple of different states this weekend!
“Howdy!” Mike Gordon will be a guest at Marcon 47 (Multiple Alternative Realities Convention) in Columbus, OH April 6-8. This fantasy & science fiction show has been held in the Midwest every year since 1966 and features some great guests from a variety of media. The theme for this year’s gathering is “Galactic Beach Party” which sounds like a perfect place for Tiki Zombie!

Hello, Earth Station One readers!
Let me preface my post here by introducing myself. I go by the name Phantom Troublemaker and do most of my writing over at Needless Things or on my Tumblr page, but the fellas here at ESO were kind (or foolish) enough to invite me to provide some content for you lucky folks.
I write about toys, movies, comics, music, or any other dorkery that interests me and I always try to keep things honest and maintain my own personal perspective. I love Doctor Who, Star Wars, GI Joe, and Batman; but if I think anything having to do with any of those is terrible I’m going to tell you all about it. At length. Also, I don’t restrain myself in my own environs, so be warned that your eyes may be assaulted by some colorful metaphors if you click on either of those above links. Stick to my ESO posts for the sanitized, mostly family-friendly versions.
I cover Toy Fair every year despite the fact that I do not attend. I’ll usually post the coolest stuff over on my Facebook page or on Twitter and then do a big recap at the end. Continue reading
