book author Christie Golden
(who, you'll probably remember, wrote Arthas
, the book our guys loved so much
) will be signing copies of that book at a bookstore
called the Book Revue
in Huntington, NY this Saturday at 7pm. In a quick interview with Newsday
there, she also talks about both her background in fantasy and sci-fi (she remembers the days when sci-fi and fantasy were seen as silly diversions rather than premises for multi-million dollar movies
and videogames, as do most of us older nerds, probably) and her experience with WoW
. She says that having the chance to jump in and virtually visit the actual setting of her books is a real plus when doing research -- if she has a question about the layout of Stormwind, she can go over to that city and check it out herself.
If you're in or near Long Island and are a Christie Golden fan or are looking for something Warcraft
-y and fun to do on Saturday, there you go. She's got more information on her blog
about the signing (looks like she'll be reading as well). If you do go, let us know how it went.
