This is my first time at Origins, its writing track now run by the inimitable Jean Rabe, and since Jean is the mastermind behind the runaway success of GenCon I expect things to run without a hitch.  Even if it doesn’t, the gaming emphasis (and presence of a lot of friends from the writing biz) pretty much ensures I’m going to have a great time.  I’d love to see you there, so please stop by if you’re in the Columbus area!  My schedule looks like this:
