I'm beginning to feel as if convention news should be a regular feature around here!

First up, Galacticon III has announced Jamie as a guest. The con will celebrate the 35th anniversary of the original Battlestar Galactica and the 10th anniversary of the, well, good version. ;) Other scheduled guests from 2003's BSG include Edward James Olmos, Michael Hogan, Leah Cairns, Luciana Carro and Aaron Douglas. The con runs from May 23rd through May 26th, 2013, in Houston. Membership fees are in line with Creation Con pricing (the gold membership is currently $299). If you register with a friend between now and August 26th, you can get a $10 gift certificate. However, I don't see that as much incentive this far out from the convention dates.

Second up, a reminder Fan Expo Canada is next weekend in Toronto and Jamie will be appearing August 24th-26th. There is a Schedule for Sci-Fi Guests as well as a Master Schedule posted for the convention. Jamie's Q&A will be Friday at 2:30pm in Hall G and photo ops will be on Friday at 1:00pm and Sunday at 11:00am. The cost for a photo op is $40. Autographs will also be $40.

Finally, Jamie will be at Dragon*Con, in Atlanta, August 31 through September 3.

A full schedule should be released by D*C next week, but the American Sci-Fi Media track as posted a tentative schedule for their panels. Jamie's is scheduled to appear at all four BSG panels:

Friday 11:30 am, Atrium Ballroom (Marroitt): This Is Not All We Are (also scheduled to appear are Katee Sackhoff, Richard Hatch and Kevin Grazier)

Saturday 4:00 pm, Centennial II-III (Hyatt): Welcome to the Quorum (also scheduled are James Callis, Katee, Hatch and Grazier)

Sunday 5:30 pm, Atrium Ballroom: Bright Shiny Futures Are Overrated (also scheduled are James, Katee and Hatch)

Monday 11:30 am, Centennial II-III: Galactica Will Bring Us Home (also scheduled James and Hatch)

Froggy's Photos has not posted photo op times yet, but Jamie is scheduled for Friday-Sunday. The cost is $40. And James and Jamie will be doing photos together on the same days for $70.

If you don't want to purchase a photo op, but still want a photo with Jamie (or James), most of the guests (there are always exceptions) will pose for photos at their autograph table for $10 or $15 dollars. From recent con appearances, Jamie still seems to be doing this.

Both Jamie and James use Erin Gray as their convention agent, while Katee is signed (last I heard) with Julie Caitlin Brown, thus her photo ops are with a different photographer. For anyone hoping to get a group shot with all three, or a photo with Jamie and Katee, sorry. :(

Also, if the Walk of Fame layout doesn't change from the last two years, Erin's clients will be signing autographs in the main room while Julie's clients will be in a smaller room across the lobby. Julie's clients are also on a signing schedule while Erin's are free to come and go. When Jamie was there in 2006 he spent a lot of time at his table.

This will be my eighth(!) Dragon*Con, so if anyone going has any questions, please feel free to ask. :)

Jamie and Kerry spent a good part of their summer in the UK and Europe and got to enjoy some of the Olympics first hand. Kerry tweeted a few photos while they were away and I realized I never got around to reposting them here. D'Oh!

And because we like to support the Bamber-Norton-Griffith family, a quick reminder that Jamie's sister, Anastasia Griffith, new series, Copper, debuts tonight at 10pm est on BBC America. It also repeats numerous times after that. You can also find her on Twitter as @AnastasiaGLive.
