It was a delight to find the Origins Game Fair only a few hours away in Columbus, Ohio. We made a few preliminary one-day blitzes to see if it was to our liking and as time went on, made it a yearly trip with a hotel stay and everything.
We’re both gamers, to a degree – I cut my teeth on 1st Ed. AD&D and went on to enjoy Battletech, Wings of War/Glory, etc. He’s been an RPG boy from practically birth and loves Heroclix, Pathfinder and Memoir ’44 so we really look forward to every year’s trip.
But this year is different – I’ve been lucky enough to be included in the Library Track, the fast-growing area dedicated to authors both in and outside of the gaming field.
I’ll be on the “Tradition!” panel, the “Building Your World” panel on Friday and the “Flash Us, Part 2” panel on Saturday. And when I’m not getting soundly thomped by a ten-year old in various games, I’ll be at my table in the Library area inside the Dealers’ Hall offering print copies of “Blaze of Glory” and “Wild Cards and Iron Horses” along with discount coupons for “Blood of The Pride”!
So if you’re going to be in the area at the end of the month and looking to get some faboo gaming time in along with a great dealers’ room… and, oh, yes – some fantastic writing seminars with the likes of Mike Stackpole and others, drop on by and say hello!
