The word “awesome” is overused, but last weekend was truly an awesome weekend. Rebecca and I flew out to LA, where I was a guest speaker at the 15th Rushcon (the international convention for Rush fans, of course), and then the final Rush concert for their R40 tour (possibly the final Rush concert ever).

When the RPG fights back! GAMEARTH

My second published novel Gamearth is a fast-paced and fun story that takes place inside and out of a Dungeons & Dragons style role-playing game, where a group of players have grown tired of their game and decide to shut it down…which is tantamount to a declaration of war against the characters inside the game—who then need to go on a quest to save their own world from falling apart (complete with dragons, magic swords, ogres…just what you’d expect).
