Biographies of Honored Members of the SF Community
"The connections we make are often what sustain us." - Kate Elliott*
May, 2016: From Arisia 2016, we have Mark Oshiro's appreciation of Fan GoH Pablo Vazquez, and Jim C. Hines' appreciation of Author GoH John Scalzi.
March, 2016: This month we have a bunch of stuff from the heart of Chicagoland! First, from Windycon in 1993, A Brief History of Higgins, by Gretchen Roper. Then, jumping to 2009, but still from Windycon, Kaja Foglio: Artist, Writer, Web-Slinger, and Mom, by Alice Bentley, and Phil Foglio, Artist of Genius, by Bill Higgins. And finally, from Capricon in 2010, Alice Bentley: Behind the Neon Rocket, also by Bill Higgins. You can kind of tell these folks are all friends, eh? In fact, the image on the left, also from 1993, is from a T-shirt Phil Foglio illustrated for "Friends of Bill", a theme we were happy to follow for March.
The SFbios.com logo, created by fan artist Sue Mason, now appears in the sidebar. Thanks, Sue!
SFbios.com aims to change that.
Here you will find bios that have been previously published by concom Publications departments, organized by topic, by author, and by convention. You are also invited to share with us bios from conventions you have attended that you thought were particularly fine or amusing. The rights to these bios revert to the authors on publication, so we must first get permission of the author to reprint them before they can be put online here, but you are welcome to send them to us or tell us about them to get that ball rolling.
If you yourself have written an attributed bio for a convention, we would love to receive a copy, as well as your permission to post it here, or even permission to post things you don't have a copy of. All rights remain with the authors.
These bios and appreciations capture an important aspect of the history of SF community: the connections between us. Without those, SF would not be what it is today. Enjoy.
