No Love in L.A.

I could tell you all about my weekend in L.A., but instead, why don’t I just link to the video I shot? This is my first iMovie attempt, I screwed up the end credits, and it doesn’t look nearly as good in YouTube form, but I think it conveys the spirit of the weekend.


Lights, Camera, Austin

Win Free Weekend Passes to Austin Comic Con!

Surely you’ve already reached the only logical conclusion and plan to join me tomorrow night (Wed., Aug 22) at 7 pm at BookPeople in Austin for a rip-roaring IF YOU LIKE THE TERMINATOR event. You know that I’ll be reading from the book, taking questions, signing copies, and that delicious beverages will be provided by Saint Arnold Brewing Company. But just in case you’ve been on the fence, I can now announce that all those who attend the event will have an opportunity to win a FREE pair of weekend passes to Austin Comic Con! The renowned comic book/sci-fi convention will be held October 26-28 at the Austin Convention Center, and will host a 25-year reunion of the cast of Star Trek: The Next Generation! I have two pairs of passes to give away, so meet me at BookPeople, won’t you?

Skuriels Ballot

This is a joint effort by two critics organizations, the Skandies and the Muriels, and you can get a better explanation of all that here. I’ve written up a couple of my favorites that made the final cut, and those should be appearing on the Skuriels site sometime today. Meanwhile, I thought I’d post my full ballot here:

The Austin American-Statesman on “If You Like The Terminator…”

The Sunday edition of the local daily tooted my horn in fine fashion. With only a couple days to go until the BookPeople event, I need all the help I can get. Thanks to Joe Gross for an entertaining write-up that rightly emphasizes my Planet of the Apes love:
