Horns

by Philip Durham

Author: Joe Hill
Date of Publication: January 30th, 2010
Genre: Thriller/Horror/Supernatural

As an avid reader of Stephen King, I was tentative when a friend recommended I read Horns, a novel by King’s son, Joe Hill.  I questioned how similar or dissimilar his work would be from his father’s.  I didn’t want a Stephen King clone, but I also did not want something vastly different, or at least not vast different from my normal range of interest.  There was also a concern of if his work was being supported due to his familial connections or if it was capable of standing on its own feet. I was pleasantly surprised. Continue reading

Ruminations of a Con Gone Well

by John Quiett

So GenCon 2014 has come and gone. And you might be saying to yourself: “Gee, a little late to be talking about it now aren’t ya John?” My answer to that would be: “Yeah, but life gets in the way a lot and my August was incredibly busy. So shut it!”  Anyway, I’m here to share my thoughts on the con and tell you a little bit about what I did so that you can live vicariously through my exploits. Or at least get an idea of what went on at the con so you can decide if you want to go next year. Continue reading

The GenCon Experience: Am I still a Newbie?

By: Shirley Niedzwiecki

If you have read any of my reviews or listened to our podcasts you know that I am “new” to the gaming scene. Well, five years new, and I’m wondering, if I don’t make it through the vendor hall, the outlying gaming areas, through panels or the seminars I want to see, does that make me a newbie? Come on! What? Do I need a plan of attack or something?

Well, this year I have a semi-excuse. I had to work. Work the vendor hall that is. And, boy was it an AMAZING experience.

This year Executive Producer/Editor in Chief Matt Quiett and I decided to attack the vendor hall and meet as many of the vendors as we could. We had our binder in hand, so Thursday morning, off we went. Continue reading

GenCon Started Friday Night

by Scott Troiano

GenCon started for me on Friday afternoon at 4:30. A group of us met at Scotty’s Brew House in downtown Indianapolis. I had the buffalo loaded tots with sriracha honey sauce and blue cheese. It was one of the best appetizers I have ever had. I followed that with a ‘big ass brew house burger’, 4 quarter pound patties of farm raised Indiana beef. I washed it all down with a local favorite, Wee Mac from Sun king brewery here in town. It was local fair prepared well, delivered with a smile, and consumed with friends, both new and old. When I walked into the place there was a giant banner on the wall that proudly proclaimed that Pathfinder was the sponsor of events in this establishment and there were two running games in opposite corners of the establishment that I noticed while I was being seated. Iron Man 3 was playing throughout the brew house and I knew then and there I was among friends. It was the start to what would be one of the best GenCon’s I had ever attended. Continue reading
