He was also stalking actor Robert Vaughan, who was there to promote a memoir. And, geek that I am, all I could think of was "OMG! You were in the classic Roger Corman movie Teenage Caveman in 1958! And you were a total hottie! I bow before you, oh celluloid God of nerdliness!" (Okay, no, of course I didn't say that to him. I restrained myself admirably. But I was thinking it.

First off, Del Rey Manga has a blog! You may not have known this as there is no link to the blog on the Del Rey Manga homepage navigation bar. Anywhere. However, if you scroll down and look at the news column, there is a wee little purple link in amidst the text. I actually found the blog quite by accident looking for something else that was not at all manga-related. Hopefully someone will fix that soon and add a HUGE link to the navigation bar because it's a very good blog and it's apparently been up since November sometime.And now I am too tired to add any more but I promise I will start posting regular link round-ups again!
