Though the REALLY BIG NEWS today is the announcement of a new television series of Thunderbirds from Pukeko Pictures and Weta Workshop, I’m very happy to announce that I’ll be a guest at Anachro Con here in Atlanta in just a few weeks! The convention celebrates alternate history and the Steampunk aesthetic, the convention is expanding their programming tracks to include classic science fiction and horror as well. I’ll be talking about some classic Hammer and Universal films, and possibly some retro futuristic-centric panels as well.

Anachro Con takes place February 22-24th at the Atlanta Marriott Northwest Hotel just off I-75 at the Windy Hill Road exit in Atlanta. Check out The convention WEBSITE for more info. Hope to see you there!
