I attend many sci-fi , horror and nostalgia conventions first for my enjoyment, and second to interview the guest celebrities that attend these shows to meet fans and sign autographs!

One of my favs is the original novel written by Robert Bloch, Psycho! It is signed by the author who I met in 1991, and by the actress Janet Leigh who was in the film version by Hitchcock. I also have a couple posters hand signed by many astronauts, cosmonauts and scientsists! Plus too many more to mention here.

Transporting into the Shore-Leave Convention 2013

                           By Mark J Gross

The term Shore Leave, to many of us could mean taking some time away from your ship as it were. Or, it could mean the Star Trek episode of the same name. Or, it could mean you better prepare yourself for a thrilling adventure for 3 days within the area of Cockeysville, and Hunt Valley Maryland, Earth. August 2013, at the…
