    Yes, the rumors are true, Houston is now getting it's own Sci-Fi shows. On February 1st and 2nd, Lone Star Shows is coming to Houston. Here's the details:

    It's at the Marriot North at Greenspoint (woo-hoo, go Northside!) Hours are 10-6 Sat and 11-4 Sunday. It's $5 admission for one day and $8 if you want a two day pass.

    The guests are Nichelle Nicholas (Uhura from Star Trek), Peter Mayhew (Chewie), Bill Blair (ST alien actor, and I'm guessing for B5, too, based off the pic they choose for the flier), Goerge Lowe (Space Ghost) and Randy Asplund (Star Trek artist).

    The address of he con is:
    Marriott North
    255 N. Sam Houston Parkway East
    Houston, TX 77060

    For more information you can check out Lone Star's website at http://www.lonestarshows.com

    There will be other cons in Houston this year, so stay tuned!

    Just an update, Traci has joined the local Rocky cast, with rehearsals late Friday nights and the show on Saturday nights, so we won't be able to make this one.

    Enjoy the show, say hi to Shannon for me :D
