|Amazingly, Comic Con has once again come and gone. But this year...this year held something new
and wonderful...the first (albeit loosely) organized session of STEAMPUNK enthusiasts. The photos
on the following two pages were taken mostly by Linda Hutsell with a few others thrown in which I
shamelessly took from Flickr. After all, I was there when the photos were taken and I'm in some of
them, as well. This was also the first time in twenty years I myself went in costume. And I must say I
wasn't ready for all the attention. But the best part of it was that it made people smile! My one regret
is that I didn't get names of all those who attended the session. So, if you see yourself in any of the
photos, please email me. Unless, of course, you want to remain anonymous, in which case...ENJOY!
Just one minor post script...if you missed the session this year, not to fear. I can say with certainty,
the Steampunk genre is on the rise and it's going to be HUGE!

kind enough to pause here long
enough to pose with the Time
