    Frank Gorshin was the guest once at this totally snowed in con in Buffalo I went to once. The hall was empty and he looked miserable, he was smoking too, it turned out to be tremendously fun to talk to miserable Frank Gorshin. He was being really catty but enjoying holding court with the five people in the room.

    I also spent an hour with Van Williams in the late 1990s, he's just a really nice, humble human being.

    I think that I am forgetting a person or two, but I have really not many celebs, in any form.

    Here is a small list of some more notable celebs that I’ve met and observations:

    Randolph Mantooth: Extremely nice. I enjoyed meeting him.

    Robert Fuller: Great guy. Very generous with his fans.

    Michael Jordan (1989): Quite friendly. Very giving of his limited time. It was a great experience.

    James Taylor: Couldn’t have been nicer. He’s also very attentive and accommodating with his fans, from what I saw. Additionally, he seemed very down to earth. You didn’t get the idea that he has ever been “Hey, I’m James Taylor!”

    Jackson Browne: I met him at a Barnes & Nobles in 2002. We had a great conversation. I certainly was not disappointed. From what I observed, he was very generous with all of his fans. Before this meeting, I read that he collected footage of his old performances. It so happened that I was able to get a couple of VHS Master copies from a show he did, in Chicago, of PBS’s series “Sound Stage” from 1976. He really appreciated that.

    The most memorable one was Marina Sirtis hugging me way back in 1988, Los Angeles convention, the first one involving the Next Generation...I wanted to marry her right there on the spot, lol.

    Ditto on Jackson Bostwick
    Best celeb I ever met was Yvonne Craig. Super nice and thankful that people stood in line to meet her. She seemed genuine and actually spent time talking with each person

    I've only been to one convention, where I met Jim Steranko. He was very generous with his time, we had a great conversation about The Shadow and Kavalier & Klay. A reasonable autograph on my Shadow paperback, too.

    I'm pleased to hear well of Van Williams. I'd love to meet Jackson Bostwick.

    I've heard nothing but good things about Alan Oppenheimer. A genuinely nice person.
    You are a bold and courageous person, afraid of nothing. High on a hill top near your home, there stands a dilapidated old mansion. Some say the place is haunted, but you don't believe in such myths. One dark and stormy night, a light appears in the topmost window in the tower of the old house. You decide to investigate... and you never return...

    ^I've seen footage of him at cons, he seems to be having a ball.
