Artist Guest of Honor: Melissa Gay

In my life as an illustrator, I have been a cover artist and interior illustrator of books and tabletop roleplaying games for about twenty years. My list of clients has included Baen Books, Llewellyn Worldwide, Hay House, Apex Press, and many tabletop roleplaying game companies. (Among the ENnie-award-winning and fan favorite games I have illustrated are the Dresden Files RPG, Fate Core, Part-Time Gods, Mermaid Adventures, Hero System, Over the Edge, Trail of Cthulhu, 13th Age, The Dracula Dossier, and Camp Myth.) I have won two Chesley Awards for my illustrations (“Offering”, 2018, and “Harvest”, 2019). My imaginative realist work has been featured in ImagineFX Magazine, io9, tor.com, and several of the Infected By Art anthologies. I’m a proud member of the Changeling Artist Collective and of ASFA, and I’m a co-founder of the Birdwhisperer Project.

STEM Guest of Honor: Dr. Stephen Granade

Dr. Stephen Granade is a physicist who specializes in sensors for (and against!) robotic vehicles. His current research involves sensors to track small drones prior to neutralizing them. He has worked on devices that can read your fingerprint from 10 feet away, systems that let unpiloted helicopters land automatically, and a video-based sensor that helped guide the Space Shuttle to the Hubble Space Telescope. If you’re afraid of the robot revolution, Dr. Granade is probably someone to watch out for. He also worked with NASA on the Advanced Video Guidance Sensor (AVGS), which measures the distance from a spacecraft to a target satellite so that the spacecraft can dock gently with the satellite. When AVGS was first tested on orbit as part of the Demonstration of Autonomous Rendezvous Technology mission, the sensor guided the spacecraft right to the satellite, where the two promptly collided. This worried NASA but made the Department of Defense very interested.

Special Guest of Honor: Christopher Woods

Christopher Woods has been an avid reader all his life. He is also the mastermind who conceived the idea and brought together the anthology, “Give Me LibertyCon!” – a tribute to LibertyCon Founder, Uncle Timmy Bolgeo.

Not only does he edit, he writes books too! In addition to “This Fallen World,” he has written five books in his wildly-popular Soulguard series, as well as “Legend” and several short stories in the Four Horsemen Universe. He currently lives in Woodbury, TN, with his step daughter and his wife, who often reminds him that he should watch what he says because he tends to fall asleep long before she does.

LC34 Charity of Choice:  Lana’s Love Foundation

About the Lana’s Love Foundation:

“We don’t know of anyone that has not been affected by cancer …whether it be a relative, friend, or co-worker. To have a child stricken with cancer is beyond description. Lana Beth was not the only one with cancer …we all felt we had the disease as well.

“Cindy and I talked many times, as bad as having a child with cancer is, it would be 100 times worse if we did not have some resources. Many people have to make a decision to go to work or to stay at the hospital with their sick child taking chemo. There is no money left for presents or to just have fun. Lana’s Love was created so those kids can have fun.”

Jim and Cindy Webster
