Archive for July 2007

In this episode I take a look at Dragon 258 and William Pall brings us another fabulous review of Dungeon, this time bringing us 149.

The Tome Summer 2007 Contest is coming to an end soon, so get your submissions in soon (http://www.thetomeshow.com/Contest.html). Contest Sponsors include: Swords Edge Publishing (http://www.swordsedgepublishing.ca), Geeklabel (http://www.geeklabel.com), Mayhem Comics (http://www.mayhemcomics.com) and Green Ronin (http://www.greenronin.com).

I am planning a Tome format change to be announced with episode 25. I would love your feedback on how that format change should look. Check out the forum thread and let me know what you think (http://www.fistfullofcomics.com/modules.php?name=Forums&file=index&c=10).

I made a recent appearance on the Murder at Avedon Hill podcast novel, which I played a promo for last episode, see links in the show notes from then.

I have completed interviews with several industry insiders and have some more planned (thanks to our sister podcast Fist Full of Comics and Games, http://www.fistfullofcomics.com). So look forward to hearing those coming up soon. They include Eytan Bernstein, Wolfgang Baur, and James Jacobs.

Billibub Baddings and the Case of the Singing Sword is a podcast novel by Tee Morris of a dwarf from a high fantasy world stuck in the 1920s/30s Chicago who has become a private investigator. I just finished listening to this story and thought you guys might want to know about it. It can be found at http://www.teemorris.com.

The annual Ennie award nominees have been announced, and Gamers Haven recently did a super-episode to familiarize you with who the winners might be. Plus they are running a contest. There is only a short amount of time to vote for the Ennies and get submitted into their contest. Check them out at: http://www.canadiancrusaders.com.

I am hoping to get the next episode out before a week is up because pretty soon I go back to school and I don't know what my free time will look like then.

As always you can find the Tome at http://www.thetomeshow.com and you can email me at thetomeshow AT gmail DOT com. Also, you can keep up with me and updates on the podcast when I am working on it on Twitter, by following me at http://www.twitter.com/squach.
