ALMYTHEA: RISE OF THE ASTRA – the first book in the new Almythea franchise – will be officially launched in November by Cliff Simon. Cliff will play Grey Paw (a kinda rebellious, smouldering, immortal Obi Wan Kenobi type) in the films and has written the foreword for the book.
The main launch will be at Supanova in Brisbane 8-10 November but there will also be events in Hunter Valley 3 November and on Gold Coast 7 November. Numbers will be strictly limited at those two events and tickets will sell fast so please keep watching the Almythea group for more info.
Advance copies of the book will be available with podcast interviews with AJ Cootes, the creator of Almythea, and celebrities involved with the production early in the second half of the year.
The official Stargate convention celebrating 25 years of the franchise is being held at the Westin O’Hare hotel in Rosemont, Illinois on 21-23 June 2019. Further information and tickets are on Creation Entertainment’s mini-site.
Cliff is appearing as part of the Saturday night cabaret, and will be in available for photoshoots and autographs on the Sunday.
A UK con has finally bagged our favourite System Lord! Cal Mah is an unofficial, fan-run event taking place at Scalford Hall Hotel, Leicestershire in November 2018. It’s being run by FCD Events, details below.
PLEASE NOTE THE ABYDOS WEEKEND PASSES (£25) ARE CURRENTLY SOLD OUT.
The event hotel also appears to be sold out, though they may have some rooms reserved; however you can only get the code once you’ve bought an event ticket, so I’m not sure. There’s also Choc Fest in Melton Mowbray the same weekend and fans have been advised to book a hotel/B&B as soon as possible.
If you’re not sure about attending, here’s a quiet word from the man himself…
“We are all Fueled By Death – We want to experience as much of life as we can. Live and let live.” – Cliff Simon
Cliff has been interviewed by the guys at Death Wish Coffee about his time as a swimmer, being a dancer at the Moulin Rouge, and living life to the max.
Cliff has joined the cast of “The Long Dig”, a short movie set in the universe of an upcoming video game. Details are scant but from these behind-the-scenes photos, it looks like he’s in his usual role as villain!
