Here's my Origins Game Fair Schedule. If I'm not here, I'm at my dealer's table in the Author Library area. I'll have copies of the Melissa Allen omnibus, the Karen Wilson Chronicles, Lost Tales, and more. Come say hello. Buy some books/ebooks. Get stuff signed. The usual. Don't be shy.
All of the panels will be in the Origins University section, hosted by the Library.
