Hey if Labor Day (or, given the context, Labour Day) is barreling our way yet again, that must mean I’ll be doing the panel thing at my hometown multitrack mega-show, FanExpo Canada. You know, me and William Shatner and Margaret Atwood, it’s how we roll. Hit the downtown Toronto convention center to find all three of us and more. I dunno about Bill and Peggy, but I’ll be at:
WORLD BUILDING IN GAMING Saturday, 1:00 PM, Room 714
GAME MASTER MASTER CLASS, Saturday, 3:30 PM, Room 713
GETTING STARTED WITH TABLETOP ROLE-PLAYING GAMES, 12:15 PM, Room 703
I am not stationed at a booth at the show, so if you’d like to chat or have something signed, hit me up after any of the above events. Out of town luminaries this year include John Kovalic, Nicole Lindroos, Emily Care Boss, Epidiah Ravachol, Eddy Webb, and C.A. Suleiman, joining your usual area gaming pals, some more Greenwoodian than others.
