DragonCon In Full Swing
Friday was the first official day of DragonCon 2005. People were arriving all day long, and the dealer rooms and galleries opened in the afternoon. Some people visited various panels or spotted toys they might want to buy later. A few of us went to a Dune party complete with a Dune novel cake. There were some neat costumes roaming the lobbies, but the really cool ones should appear Saturday evening. We capped off Friday night with a big Pictochat session in the Marriott.

The Silverheart of the Matter
Alert readers of Origin's Official Guide to Wing Commander III may remember that series creator Chris Roberts worked on another interactive movie called Silverheart before leaving Origin. While the project never materialized, a tie-in book based on the concept did. It's been available in England for several years... and now, for the first time, it's being released in the United States. Roberts believed in the project so much that he continued to advocate it after leaving Electronic Arts -- it may yet materialize someday. Interested parties can learn more at Amazon.
