Hello Con Maniacs,
Wow, 2011! It is hard to believe. What better way to start off the year than with Vampires…Eycon is putting on a Vampire Diaries event March 25-27 at the THE WESTIN ATLANTA AIRPORT, 4736 Best Road, Atlanta, Georgia 30337
So far they have the very talented Paul Wesley headlining who portrays Stephan Salvatore on the CW’s hit series Vampire Diaries. You have also seen him in 24, Army Wives, Fallen and Wolf Lake…
So what do you think of that photo? If you would like to see more detailed coverage of this event please let the promoter know at firstname.lastname@example.org
So what do you think of Vampire Diaries? Do you like it better than Twilight or do you swoon for those that sparkle instead of bite? I would love to hear your comments. Email me at Magid@raybin.com
I hope your year if off to a roaring start. Over the holidays a big box was delivered with a return address of Transylvania. I have been so busy I have not opened it. I guess I should go down to the basement and check it out…Wish me luck…

Hello my time travelling Con Maniacs,
For your viewing pleasure I would like to present to you Timegate! This event occurs at the HOLIDAY INN SELECT, 4386 Chamblee-Dunwoody Road, Atlanta, GA 30341 May 27-29, 2011
Timegate has only just begun to set their guest list, but their first major guest is a good one. For all you Doctor Who fans(classic). Sophie Aldred will be appearing. Sophie Aldred has had a long and varied career in television and theatre but is best known to American audiences as Ace, the trustworthy, staunchly loyal, explosives-happy companion of the Seventh Doctor in Doctor Who, starring alongside Sylvester McCoy in such classic tales as “Remembrance of the Daleks”, “The Curse of Fenric”, “Ghost Light”, “The Greatest Show in the Galaxy”, and the final story of the show’s original 26-year run, “Survival”.
TimeGate is an annual science fiction / fantasy convention that focuses on Doctor Who and Stargate but also includes programming on a wide range of other sci-fi / fantasy interests. So if you’re into Stargate SG-1, Doctor Who, Stargate Atlantis, Torchwood or The Sarah Jane Adventures—or you’re excited about the new show Stargate Universe—this is the convention for you! But if not, they will also have Star Trek, Battlestar, Star Wars, Heroes, literary, horror and comics programming too, along with many other topics.
This looks to be a great show to keep your eye on. I’ll update you as they add new guests. You know, Ace was one of my favorite companions of the later Doctor’s. Some of them were written WAY to dumb. They always work better when they challenge the Doctor in some way. Whether it be morally, emotionally! Just long as they make him work.
Well I’ll be, K 9 just came into the room. What’s that? Sarah Jane’s in trouble? Again?!? Oh I hope she has her Sonic Lipstick. Got to go save the day again…Drop me a line at Magid@raybin.com I would love to hear from you…
Happy Sunday Con Maniacs,
Here we have a unique event that I am so glad is out there, Gaylaxiconwhich occurs May 13-15, 2011 at the Holiday Inn Select – Perimeter, Atlanta, GA. Gaylaxicon is the annual international Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Horror Convention for gay men, lesbians, bisexuals, transgendered people and their friends!
This event and network has been around for a long time. In 1986, the Gaylaxian Science Fiction Society (GSFS) was formed in Boston. That September, as a result of folks gathering at Worldcon, they began a national group called the Gaylactic Network. Elected board members and officers, along with many other volunteers, administer the Network. Since 1986, the Network has had up to 12 affiliate clubs. The affiliates are locally oriented, regionally based, autonomous clubs with their own leadership and membership. Currently, affiliates are located in Boston, Washington DC, Minneapolis, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Niagara Falls and Toronto.
In 1988, the Network and GSFS sponsored Gaylaxicon, the very first LGBT science fiction convention, in Provincetown, Massachusetts. Our first Guest of Honour was J.F. Rivkin.
Through Gaylaxicon and other activities, the Gaylactic Network pursues the following goals:
To promote science fiction, fantasy, and horror, and other related genres (SF/F/H) in all forms, with particular attention to materials of interest to Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgendered (LGBT) people.
To provide forums for LGBT people and their friends to share their interest in SF/F/H.
To promote the presence of LGBT elements within SF/F/H and within fandom.
To promote SF/F/H within the LGBT communities.
Through Sci Fi the Gay community is supported. I know Dr. Who would be proud as am I. Let me know what you think. Do you have a GLBT friend who would enjoy an event like this? I would love to hear from you. Contact me at Magid@raybin.com
John Barrowman would make a great guest for this event. I worked with him in 2008. He is just as good as man in person as you would expect. I’m looking forward to his return to Torchwood…
Have a great Monday everyone. I’m off to another galaxy with the Doctor and Captain Jack! Who knows what adventures we will get up too…
