Re: Shore Leave

^That sounds right. The folks at GraphicAudio talked to me about needing Marvel's final approval on Drowned in Thunder before it could be released, but they said nothing about Pocket.

Here's the promised blog post about my visit to their studio:

Re: Shore Leave

I didn't realize that. It probably would also explain why some of them seem to be kind of hard to find now.

Re: Shore Leave

Well, hey, if lots of people buy my audiobook, then GraphicAudio will get to do more Marvel novel adaptations, and maybe that will raise their profile enough that Marvel will reprint the novels. (Unfortunately I won't make any more money out of it, but I'd like to see my and others' Marvel novels get more exposure than they did the first time.)

Re: Shore Leave

Are they the ones who do full cast audio drama versions of the books?

Yep. They also adapted a bunch of my DC comics novelizations a few years back . . .

I've looked around on their site a few times, there stuff does sound pretty cool. If I get more extra money I might have to check out some of their stuff.

Re: Shore Leave

Woo hoo! I've just committed to attending my first Shore Leave ever. 2014 is my year! Finally seeing the USA in a season other than the middle of winter!

In the 80s and 90s I attended (and even hosted as MC) many Aussie conventions, and managed to be in New York the same weekend as a Creation Con in January 1984. So I kinda know what to expect.

All tips for a successful convention gratefully received! Thank you!

You don't want to miss the big mass author signing on Friday night. It starts around ten and is the one time you will find every Trek writer present in the same place!

See you there!

Yep. That's my main drawcard, of course!

See you there!
Excellent! Can't wait!

Yes and no. I'm loath to liken Shore Leave to any of the sleazy Creation dog-and-pony shows that are specifically designed to separate the attendee from as much of their money as humanly possible, all while trying to make sure the experience is as dehumanizing as possible for said attendee. Shore Leave is a much more pleasant and edifying experience for folks who show up to it than any Creation show could ever hope to be.

Lookin' forward to seeing you there.

Re: Shore Leave

I must come back to the US and do a con again one of these years; Shore Leave is lots of fun.

On a related subject... Does anyone know of good cons that take place in Ohio? I need an excuse to go visit the USAF museum...

Re: Shore Leave

I never went to either when I lived in Ohio, but my anime fan and/or 501st friends usually did both Mid-Ohio Con (now "Ohio Comic Con") and Ohayocon. Not sure if either would have the requisite audience, though.

Re: Shore Leave

Hi KRAD, I certainly wasn't comparing Shore Leave to Creation. What I meant is, I've attended, MCed and helped organise the full gamut of conventions here in Australia, both fan-run and highly commercial, and have attended Creation-style cons here and in USA, so after many years of hearing attendee reviews of Shore Leave, I hope I have enough experience to pitch my expectations appropriately.

Seems to me it has a reputation of being a large, well organized, well attended convention.
