JediCon WV: Toys, Flashbacks and Fun.

Attention fellow Star Wars and/or 1980s pop culture geeks in the Western Pennsylvania/Eastern Ohio/Northern West Virginia area: Nerdfest coming up Saturday (Oct. 10) at the sixth edition of JediConWV.

It’s at the Kruger Street Toy & Train Museum, and I’ll be there most of the day signing and selling copies of “Collect All 21!“. At 11 a.m., I’ll be reading some excerpts accompanied by 1970s & ’80s photos (Brown corduroys! Avocado linoluem! Gold curtains! C’mon, hands up if you remember!) and 8mm home movie stills. It’ll be an unparalleled multimedia extravaganza, I swear. (Or not. But I’m planning to have fun, I can tell you that much.)

And if you don’t want to come all the way to Wheeling (though it is only 60 miles from Pittsburgh, 90 from Akron/Canton, 127 from Columbus, and 2,464 from Shumway, California) just to see me, I get that.

You should also know, though, that Jon Seay is supposed to be there with original Star Wars props and tales of working on the first movie; Kim Simmons, “The Man Who Shot Luke Skywalker” is on the list, and Don Pedicini Jr. created some exclusive artwork and posters just for the occasion.

Perhaps I can say it best by paraphrasing the poet-warrior John McClane: “Come out to JediCon, we’ll get together, have a few laughs…
