More Cool Happenings From Comic-Con
I had the utter delight of watching 20 Million Miles To Earth with Ray Harryhausen in the audience, telling us how he made the effects in the film. I attended two Stargate panels, and wandered the exhibit hall full of books, comics, films, and artists. I caught up with fellow writers Christopher Golden
, Jeff Mariotte
and Simon Wood
, and made many new friends.
One of my fave comic book writers and artists, Chris Wisnia
, was in attendance. He does these brilliant giant monster comics. I picked up the newest Doris Danger: Where Giant Monsters Creep and Stomp digest, and thoroughly recommend it to everyone! Chris's work is hilarious, vibrant, and a must-have for anyone who enjoys giant monsters.
I also got to see Ernie Hudson
again, who is utterly engaging, interesting and friendly -- a real pleasure to talk to.

Needless to say, I am walking on air, and my new handsome award sits on my writing desk now.

; Jeff Mariotte for his novels Las Vegas: High Stakes Game
