From Timothy Zahn's FB page:

Timothy's 2014 Convention appearances

June 12-15: Origins, Columbus, OH www.originsgamefair.com f — www.facebook.com/groups/OriginsGameFair

Don't see him listed on the guest page, so either it's a recent addition or SURPRISE!

/Really cool to hear he'll be there, though. I know a lot of friends that love his books.

Edit: Looks like he'll be there as parts of the library seminars and not as a featured guest. Still, he's going to be there.

He's actually been attending for a number of years as a member of the Library - the special section in the Dealers Hall set up to promote authors.

There's going to be writing panels and workshops - as well you can purchase a convention-themed anthology with short stories ONLY available at Origins! This year the theme is "Monsters!" so you can be assured of some faboos stories from Timothy Zahn, Mike Stackpole and the many other authors attending.

There will also be books for sale from the various authors.

Like... me!

Please come on to the back of the Dealers Hall and visit the Library!

I met him last year he was selling his new Scoundrel's book. Highlight of the event for me. We talked for well over a half hour about the new movies. Last year I believe ehe ended up playing some X-wing as well!

He is often wandering the gaming halls in the evenings as well. We've run Star Wars events the past few years and he has stopped by to chat briefly. I always seem to go to the library at the times he is not in, unfortunately.
