Crazy 8 Press Celebrates 2nd Anniversary at Shore Leave

2ndBirthdayC8Russ Colchamiro, Peter David, Michael Jan Friedman, Robert Greenberger, Glenn Hauman, Paul Kupperberg, and Aaron Rosenberg will be on hand to celebrate Crazy 8 Press’ second anniversary this weekend at Shore Leave 35. Saturday at Noon, in Salon F, the seven members of the digital press will meet the fans and discuss the past, present, and future.

But first, on Friday evening, the magnificent seven will be on hand during the Meet the Authors event where several titles will be making their convention debut. These include ReDeus’ third anthology, Native Lands, Colchamiro’s Finders Keepers (previously published but this is a new edition), and Kupperberg’s The Same Old Story. David’s Pulling up Stakes, previously available digitally, will be available as a print omnibus for the first time.

The Saturday panel will detail the birth pangs endured by the collective after first forming at Shore Leave 33. After announcing its existence at a panel, the writers spent the weekend publicly jamming on a short story, “Demon Circle”, which went on sale weeks later with proceeds going to support the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund. Since then, the authors have released short stories, novellas, novels, and anthologies.

Additionally, the seven authors can be found scattered all around the programming schedule with highlights including a ReDeus panel on Sunday afternoon and three of the cofounders – David, Friedman, and Greenberger – bringing the curtain down on the convention with their 21st edition of Mystery Trekkie Theater.
