Quote from: Raymond E. Feist in December 2013 @ Crydee.com
It's official. I will be traveling to South Africa next September! I'll be participating in the Open Book Festival from the 17th to the 21st, then will be in Johannesburg from the 22nd to the 24th. Obviously, specifics as to venues and times will be coming later next year, so don't ask. I don't know where they're sending me. Circle those dates, because with this much advance notice you don't have any excuses! See you next year!

Well, if Halfniak is still around, I'm guessing he will get a chance to meet REF. :)

Don't believe we have anyone else living there, do we?
