No business like...

Well, I survived the Memorabilia show at the NEC Birmingham last weekend - I got back yesterday.
Fun. Busy on Saturday - especially as Harris Toser of Non-Sport Update (NSU) was hosting a meeting for Card Talk members (Card Talk is the online discussion forum hosted by the NSU website -
Thanks to a very good friend who is also a published trading card sketch artist (Patrick J. Hammill - his work appears in the Rittenhouse Archive "Art & Images of Xena: Warrior Princess"), two of my interests (trading cards and the author E.F.Benson) have combined to form this:

The view from the NSU stand (where I helped out for a while) was of the Tetley Tea van, and the massed ranks of sandwich and jacket potato eating show visitors, but it was still fun! Lots of new cards and hints about forthcoming sets which, if I repeated them hear, would mean me tracking down and killing anyone who actually reads this! However, I can reveal that there will be a new "Spike" set featuring the adventures of the character so memorably potrayed by James Marsters in both "Buffy The Vampire Slayer" and "Angel"; there is likely to be a set for "Stargate Atlantis" and a "Quotable Star Trek The Next Generation" set is in the design stage for release next year...
