René began feeling under the weather a few days before DragonCon, and therefore had to cancel his appearance there over Labor Day weekend. He extends his regrets and disappointment at not being able to be there in 2015.
Much to his disappointment, René had to cancel his trip to Atlanta over Labor Day weekend.
However, he remains committed to raising money for Médecin San Frontières/Doctors Without Borders, and always appreciates the generosity of fans who help him support the lifesaving work of MSF/DWB.
Throughout September, our eBay auction, featuring items personally autographed by René and some of his Star Trek and Broadway theatre colleagues, raised over $550 for MSF/DWB. Thanks very much to everyone who participated!
DragonCon prides itself on being “the largest multi-media, popular culture convention focusing on science fiction & fantasy, gaming, comics, literature, art, music, and film in the universe!” Events take place in several hotels – the last time René attended, he spent much of his time at the “Walk of Fame” room signing autographs, but also participated in several panels throughout the weekend.
Film & Comic Con Belfast will host a number of guests from film and television, with autograph sessions, photo ops, panels, and an extensive collection of dealers selling all sorts of collectibles and memorabilia.
During the first week of August, René recorded the audiobook version of the latest Pendergast novel by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child. Crimson Shore is scheduled to be released on November 10, 2015 – mark your calendar, or preorder now!
