Or at least one of the Crazy 8 founders is! Aaron Rosenberg, author of the SF comedies No Small Bills and Too Small for Tall and co-creator of the ReDeus anthologies, will be at the Origins Game Fair in Columbus, Ohio this weekend. “I’m looking forward to it,” Rosenberg reported. “I used to go to GenCon [Origins’ sister convention, held in August in Indianapolis] every year, first as a gamer and then as a game publisher, but I stopped after my kids were born and after my writing focus shifted from games to novels. I’ve never had the opportunity to check out Origins before, but they’ve been building a solid author track the past few years so when they invited me to participate I decided to give it a try.” Aaron’s panels are listed below, and he will also be selling books in the dealer’s hall with the other authors of the Library, including not only No Small Bills, Too Small for Tall, and the ReDeus anthologies but also his space-opera Birth of the Dread Remora and his occult thriller Incursion. If you’re attending Origins, stop by and say hi!
