Thorpe? In my Neighborhood?

The dude himself.

The dude himself.

It’s more likely than you think.

So a little birdie on the Black Library Twitter feed mentioned that one Gavin Thorpe will be near Washington D.C. for the NOVA Open. Whether or not this has anything to do with the earthquake we got remains to be seen, but the amazing stories he writes do tend to shake things up. Thorpe is the writer of Shadow King, Path of the Seer and one of my favorites, The Last Chancers.

Here is the flier.

I would love to walk into the convention, find him and over eagerly shove my battered and over-read copy of The Last Chancers omnibus into his hands for him to sign. But sadly (or fortunately if you’re Thorpe), time and finances are a bit tight for me to afford the $35 entry ticket.

But for those of you who can and want to make it, reserve your ticket at the NOVA Open and enjoy the conventions painting and gaming. The convention starts tomorrow and goes all weekend, and is taking place at the Hyatt Regency in Crystal City, just off of the Ronald Reagan National Airport metro stop.
