This weekend, I’m one of the guests of honor at Gamehole Con in Madison, Wisconsin. This is my last scheduled public appearance of the year, before I hunker down in my writing den for the winter.
I was a guest last year too, and I had an absolutely wonderful time at the show. If you’re a gamer and you can make it out to Madison this weekend, be sure that you do. For one, there’s an astounding lineup of guests, including Peter Adkison, Jolly Blackburn, Wolfgang Baur, Chris Clark, Monte Cook, Shanna Germain, Jeremy Crawford, Ed Greenwood, Ernie Gygax, Luke Gygax, Allen Hammack, Andy and Kristin Looney, Mike Mearls, Dave Megarry, Frank Mentzer, Marc Miller, Doug Niles, Erol Otus, Jen Page, Merle Rasmussen, Chris Perkins, Paul Peterson, Stefan Pokorny, Steven Schend, Rob Schwalb, Elisa Teague, Jim Ward, Tom Wham, Rob Wieland, and Tom Lommel (a.k.a. Bill Cavalier, the Dungeon Bastard).
On top of that, my friend Jeff Martin is bringing True Dungeon to the show. This is the first convention this amazing, live-action fantasy roleplaying game been available outside of Gen Con, and getting a chance to play in it is worth the price of admission itself. If it’s not sold out, find a way to wedge yourself into a game. It’s stunningly entertaining.
Like the cherry on top of this gaming sundae, my pal John Kovalic (of Apples to Apples and Munchkin fame) has resurrected Dorkstock, his con inside a con, just for Gamehole Con. He has a full slate of events scheduled, all of which are guaranteed fun.
I’m scheduled to run a pair of Shotguns & Sorcery RPG sessions, each of which is already sold out. I’m also going to be on a panel called “A D20 in One Hand and a Laptop in the Other” at 6 PM on Friday, along with Tim Gerritsen, Jason Blair, and Keith Matejka. On top of that, I’m scheduled to be at the autograph area at 10 AM on Saturday and 11 AM on Sunday. While I’m there, I’ll have a stack of bookplates for my latest book, Dungeonology, which you can grab and slap into your book when it arrives. Or, if you’re one of the lucky few who grabbed one early, I can scribble directly inside your book instead.
Either way, I hope to see you there!
