The Stan Kirsch Moment
By Lyria Wollich
On the first day of the con - Friday afternoon Jan and I
decided to stop into the Meet Stan Kirsch event that was scheduled since
due to our busy workload we missed his earlier Q&A.
By the time we arrived at the dealer area, we were
surprised to see at least 75 to a hundred people in line, waiting to get
into the room. Seeing Andrew and Bob, we stopped by to chat with
them, figuring it was way too crowded and busy and we would never get
in. We found out that they had only expected a small group of
people, perhaps 45 to 75 and ended up with over 200! The room that
had been set aside was WAY too small. In a change of plan, they made
plans to relocate Stan and his fans...
Moments later, while I was chatting with Maureen Russell,
a smiling Stan walked by being followed by this huge entourage of women.
The sight was truly incredible, Stan at the front being trailed by 200
women. Not able to resist I called out to Stan - "Hey look,
it's the Pied Piper of Hamilin!" Stan turned back towards us
and had on a 1000 kilowatt smile on his face. Maureen stood up on
her chair and began to clap and cheer. It was truly a moment to
remember. Tell me when the last time was that you saw a man being
followed by that many women? LOL!
