It’s been announced legendary Shannara scribe Terry Brooks will be the author guest of honor at this year’s Gen Con. You have to say that’s pretty cool as I’m pleased to see someone who no doubt has inspired legions of fantasy gamers to take to the table top make his way to the best four days of gaming!
From Gen Con:
