Adventures of a Newbie Con-goer

The dates: 17-18 January 1998
The place: The Burbank Hilton, Burbank CA
The event: A massive convergence of all things Xena (and some Hercules....), human, and inhuman, animated and hyper-animated.
I left the cold tundra of Boston on the morning of a nor'easter (such timing!) to make my first venture into a "large" microcosm of the Xenaverse, that place where many Hard Core Nut Balls (© Lucy Lawless) would gather in one place. At last! For a few scant days, there was no one to question my obsession for all things Xena (and some Hercules...). And so the adventure began....
