Knew about it like 8 months ago, but it should be interesting since the authors weren't allowed to talk about any games they created or developed... so you get a sort of more accurate "what's good" from that.

Truthfully, I would be surprised to find out if he was asked and actually turned it down.  I am just speculating on that though, but through everything you read, its almost like DA's initials should have been DH instead. :wink:

Isn't Lee Gold the editor and publisher and sales department, ect... for the Alarums and Excursions fanzine?

And isn't Lee a guy?

Lee Gold is indeed a woman, and is the founder and all those of other things of Alarums and Excursions, as well as the designer of FGU's Land of the Rising Sun.

Looks like one I'll have to keep an eye out for at the store.  That's a great list of names on board there, and I can't wait to read it!

It has taken me until now to realize that Lee Gold is not on the list and that your question was rhetorical.  :oops:
