Guest of Honor
Orson Scott Card is one of the most renowned sf writers of this generation. Ender's Game, Speaker for the Dead (which won back-to-back Hugo Awards), the "Tales of Alvin Maker" sequence, The Memory of Earth, and most recently, the "Woman of Genesis" series, have each made a significant impact on the field of science fiction. 'Nuff said.
Alan Pollack's artwork is characterized by vivid images, realistic people, and thought-provoking subjects. In addition to his illustrious career at TSR, he's also done many sf and fantasy covers for HarperCollins, Bantam, and Berkeley Publishing.
Mike Glyer is a well-known West Coast fan. He was the Chairman of LACon III, the 54th Woldcon, and, in his spare time, he is the editor of the Hugo-winning publication, File 770.
Urban Tapestry is a Toronto-based filk/folk trio whose music has been described as "filk and folk music with a quirky twist." That "quirky twist" tends to be the liberal use of media, and science fiction and fantasy themes in both their humorous and serious songs.
