Fiction: 2013 Spin a Yarn
The Unforking Family Tree

At Gen Con in 2013, Ed Greenwood and a room full of Gen Con attendees met together at the Spin a Yarn seminar to create a work of cooperative storytelling.

About the Author
Ed Greenwood is the man who unleashed the Forgotten Realms setting on an unsuspecting world. He works in libraries, plus he writes fantasy, science fiction, horror, mystery, and romance stories (sometimes all in the same novel), but he is happiest when churning out Realmslore, Realmslore, and more Realmslore. He still has a few rooms in his house in which he has space left to pile up papers.
