We are pleased to announce Gahan Wilson as the Guest of Honor for WFC98. Known largely for his cartoons and illustrations, Gahan Wilson is also a multi-talented writer, producing horror, mysteries and children's books.
Our Special Guest, writer and publisher Frank M. Robinson, is a collector of pulps, the inexpensive magazines of the mid-20th century that provided a venue for writers as diverse as Edgar Rice Burroughs, Dashiell Hammett, H.P. Lovecraft, C.L. Moore and Tennessee Williams. Frank will be sharing gems from his collection with us.
Toastmaster Richard A. Lupoff has also published a wide range of works: science fiction, fantasy, mystery, horror. As Ova Hamlet, he wrote a number of pastiches of genre fiction.
