I ran into John DeNardo of the excellent SF Signal at the World Fantasy Convention over Halloween weekend. I’ve been following the site for a while, and we hit it off while chatting at the Tor party. They do a fantastic job of covering all the news for genre lit.
Yesterday, I saw they had a new “Mind Meld” post up that posited the question “What are your favorite SF/F games?” to a number of writers, including Tobias Buckell, Ari Marmell, John Scalzi, John Joseph Adams, and Tim Akers. I shot them a direct message on Twitter saying how much I liked it and how I would have been happy to contribute myself. Within minutes, I had an apologetic note saying that they’d actually meant to ping me for it, and would I be interested in answering the question in a make-up post.
Of course, I said yes. It doesn’t take much to get me to prattle on about one of my favorite topics. Apologies in advance to my friends whose games slipped my mind at that exact moment but which no doubt would be at the top of such a list on any other day.
