Heads up! Did you know Intervention offers free promotional tables to charitable organizations that support our troops and veterans?

Community is a big part of all Onezumi Events projects, and Intervention is no exception. If you’re a charitable group that supports our military and would like to promote at our con, please email your details to contact@interventioncon.com. All approved groups will receive a table and two free badges.

Tables must be reserved in advance so we can verify that we have enough space, and also so we can market your organization’s involvement with Intervention. We look forward to working with you!

GUEST SPOTLIGHT: Five Questions with John Peel

ChQX0P5UcAA3Ltl

Leading up to the con, we’ll be spotlighting some of our guests, what to expect at the con, and what they personally are looking forward to! Up first is author John Peel. John has been a guest at our sister event, (Re)Generation Who, for the last two years. Now he’s crossing over to join us at Intervention!

John has written tie-ins for several series, including Doctor Who and Star Trek, as well as his own book series, 2099 and Diadem. Our attendees will have a chance to chat with him about all of these, as well as his personal experiences as a writer.

InterventionCon: At Intervention, we take time to spotlight both fandom favourites and lesser-known creators. Is there a lesser-known creator you think our attendees should know about?

John Peel: Far too many! One would have to be my friend Alan Brennert. Alan’s written some well-loved “Batman” comics, he’s story-edited and written for TV shows Like “Wonder Woman”, “Buck Rogers” and “The Twilight Zone”. Currently he’s writing some well-received novels such as “Honolulu” and “Molokai”. And, along with all of that, he’s a very nice fellow (even if he does like to laugh at my mis-pronouncing Spanish street names in LA…)

IC: Is there anything about your career now that you wish you’d known when you were just starting out?

JP: That an awful lot of editors who claim they’d love to read your latest manuscript are lying. If I’d known that, it would have saved me a lot of time and anxiety.

IC: If an attendee were to walk up to you at the event, what would you be most excited to chat with them about?

JP: Me. Well, my stories! If they liked or hated them, what they enjoyed, what they think might have made them better. That’s the best way for me to gauge whether or not I’m doing the right thing, and hopefully to improve. No matter how much you’ve written, there’s always room for improvement, isn’t there?

IC: Which of our other guests are you looking forward to seeing at Intervention?

JP: Well, I have to confess that would be Dwight Schultz. I watched “The A-Team” purely to see what craziness he’d get up to. And when he was cast as Barclay on “Star Trek – The Next Generation”, I knew we’d be in for a treat, and he didn’t disappoint. I do want to get him to autograph something that might surprise him (no, not an H.M. Murdock figure mint in box – though I do have one!) – one of my novels. I like the idea of him signing one of my own books to me… I should add that it’s because Barclay is a character in it!

IC: Is there anything else you’re looking forward to at the con?

JP: Meeting the staff and the fans again. I know that sounds like I’m kissing up, but it’s quite true – I have such a wonderful time with everyone, and (despite my fabled British reserve) I get and give a lot of very sincere hugs. These conventions wouldn’t be nearly as much fun if all of these wonderful people weren’t involved. I’d name names, except I ain’t no squealer.
