IamA writer of speculative fiction (fantasy) who refuses to grow up...R.A. Salvatore
Hi there. My name is R.A. Salvatore (call me Bob) and I’m the author of more than 50 novels, including more than thirty set in the Forgotten Realms fantasy setting (including my new release, “The Companions”), a couple of Star Wars books (including the novelization of “Episode II: The Attack of the Clones”), and eleven books set in my own creation, DemonWars.
I was the “Creator of Worlds” for 38 Studios, a wound that’s still raw, I admit, and have worked on numerous gaming projects, tabletop pen-and-paper and video. In that vein, I’ve got a kickstarter, DemonWars: Reformation, running right now, a week to go, for a pen-and-paper, old-school tabletop role-playing game set in my DemonWars world of Corona. We’ve already funded and are pushing through the stretch goals (mostly art) right now, and the joy of this is that I get to work with my sons again, and with some incredibly talented folks I got to know at 38 Studios.
Whew, that was a mouthful. Okay, hammer away and take the conversation where you will – this is your forum, after all, so ASK ME ANYTHING.
Whew - ran all the way through and now it's time to hit refresh. I'm almost scared to do it.
OKAY GOTTA RUN...That was a rush - these always are. You guys were so kind and gracious - I'm almost disappointed! My softball team, Clam Battlehammer, lost in the bottom of the last inning and I came here looking for a fight, dagnabbit!
Hehe, just kidding. Great talking to all of you and I'm sorry I simply couldn't get to all the questions!
