This week’s Friday Lightning is no exception, as most of the buzz I picked up this week centered around it:
Local web-series “Mantecoza” released their first trailer.
- You can check it out here on YouTube.
- The creators are swell blokes, so be sure to stalk them online.
“Restless Anthology” is looking for Steampunk stories and more.
- They’re gearing up (ha!) for a Steampunk Street II publication.
- If you’d like to contribute some Steampunk-ish stories, poetry, art, anything – be sure to let them know!
- Get the details on submitting to their publication here, and you can email them too if you’re interested.
- (And if Steampunk isn’t your thing, they still might be interested in other writings.)
Local Geek Stuff Elsewhere:
- Nerdvana wrote a scoop on the Vul-Con Arena I event coming up, as well as Video Games Live.
- (He’s giving away tickets to some followers, so be sure to follow his links.)
- And Phoenix New Times had a love/hate relationship with Wild Wild West Con.
And finally, I was picked by readers as the East Valley’s Best Blogger!
- Here’s the announcement, and here’s my post on it.
- Thanks again everyone!
- You’re next, Best of West Valley… (which I just made up).
Got any tips on the nerd scene in Arizona? Want to get the word out on something?
Have a great weekend, everyone!
Maybe I’ll see a few of you at Cinematic Titanic on Saturday.
