Bad news for any WC fans hoping to get Aaron Allston to sign copies of Claw Marks at Dragon*Con - he has had to cancel due to a knee injury. Aaron Allston is a famous Star Wars author, but we know him as the author of Wing Commander 1's Claw Marks guide. He also wrote the Privateer TV bible for what would have become a Privateer TV series that tied in with a pair of Privateer games. Meeting Aaron and asking him to sign copies of Claw Marks is almost an annual tradition, but there's always next year. Here's the official quote from Aaron's web site:
I suffered a knee injury on Saturday, August 20, and have concluded that attending Dragon*Con this year would probably make things worse. Apologies to anyone who might have been planning to see me at that convention.
