Going Rogue – a Prophecy fulfilled

As you may or may not know there are many conventions throughout the year themed around a wide variety of current and past TV shows and run by a number of different organisers. I’ve been attending events for a long time but one of the few UK conventions I’ve not done is one run by Rogue Events.

But then they go and announce an event called Prophecy based around the TV show Buffy The Vampire Slayer and it’s offshoot, Angel. On top of this they announce Alyson Hannigan as one of the guests.

Meeting the Man on the Moon

I have just attended only my second ever book signing event. Possibly a bit surprisingly given the number of other signing events I go to but book signings are often midweek, during the day and just not possible for me to get to most of the time. I say second but I’m not really counting the time Bruce Dickinson from Iron Maiden put a book out and I got that signed as I was really getting the album signed, the book was a silly extra and really not very good.

The first proper one I did was in 2014 for Gillian Anderson which was a fun event with friends and I wrote about that in the article A Vision of Fire. So whose appearance dragged me out to one this time? (more…)
