Comics writer, author and Primary Clone Dan Abnett will be at a signing to promote a move of premises for Maidstone games shop No Man’s Land next Saturday (23rd February).
An independent gaming shop, No Man’s Land is, Dan tells us via his blog, “a very friendly and convivial place to hang out, play some games, and generally be.
“They are going to be opening in a new premises not far from their old site, and I’m going to be generally hanging around in a menacing way during the afternoon to help celebrate their new opening.
“If you’re in the area, or feel the inclination, please come by and support the event. It will, I’m quite sure, be possible to persuade me to sign stuff, or answer questions, or even – can you believe it? – play a game of something.”
• No Man’s Land is now at Unit 32, the Royal Star Arcade, High Street, Maidstone ME14 1JL and open from 9.30am – 6.00pm on Saturday. Web: www.nomanslandgames.com
