It’s the shortest, slushiest month of the year. Which is why we are attacking it with swords.

Join us for a panel of literally sword-wielding authors — Sebastien de Castell, Miles Cameron, and Nicholas Eames — at 3:00 pm on Saturday, February 3, to discuss history, fantasy writing, and pointy things with sharp edges.

Sebastien de Castell has worked as a musician, ombudsman, interaction designer, fight choreographer, teacher, project manager, actor, and product strategist, and is the author of the acclaimed swashbuckling fantasy series The Greatcoats. His debut novel, Traitor’s Blade, was shortlisted for both the 2014 Goodreads Choice Award for Best Fantasy and the Gemmell Morningstar Award for Best Debut. He lives in Vancouver, Canada with his lovely wife and two belligerent cats.

Nicholas Eames was born to parents of infinite patience and unstinting support in Wingham, Ontario. Though he attended college for theatre arts, he gave up acting to pursue the infinitely more attainable profession of “epic fantasy novelist.” Kings of the Wyld is his first novel. Nicholas loves black coffee, neat whiskey, the month of October, and video games. He currently lives in Ontario, Canada, and is very probably writing at this moment.

Miles Cameron was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in 1962. After the longest undergraduate degree on record (1980-87), he joined the United States Navy, where he served as an intelligence officer and as a backseater in S-3 Vikings in the First Gulf War, in Somalia, and elsewhere. After a dozen years of service, he became a full time writer in 2000. He lives in Toronto with his wife Sarah and their daughter Beatrice and works as a full-time historical novelist, and it is the best job in the world.
