Dear Dream-Quest Backers,
Pardon the email, but I'm really happy to announce this: I'm a guest at NecronomiCon Providence, the HP Lovecraft/Cthulhu convention in Rhode Island on August 20-23!
This isn't my first trip to Providence; I brought the first issue of "Dream-Quest" to one of the first NecronomiCons in 1997, and nerded out in the presence of some of my favorite horror & fantasy writers. Now I'm looking forward to seeing a whole new bunch of cool Lovecraftian folk, from Silvia Moreno-Garcia to Paul of Cthulhu (of gaming/podcast site yog-sothoth.com), Chris and Chad of HP Podcraft, Ezra Claverie, my favorite horror novelist Ramsey Campbell, Sandy Petersen and many more! And I'll also be participating in some of my own panels and game events, including panels on Lord Dunsany, the Dreamlands and horror gaming; two playtests of my forthcoming Dreamlands RPG; and the special Cthulhu edition of "Mangaka: The Fast & Furious Game of Drawing Comics."
Please check out my whole schedule of events here! Also, if you're thinking of going to NecronomiCon but don't have a ticket yet, I'm still looking for someone to help out for a few hours in the dealers' hall... ;)
