Drawing upon the good will generated by an earlier non-fiction book he had written for Simon & Schuster, John secured a contract to write Masks, number seven in the Star Trek: The Next Generation book series.  He has dabbled in the Star Trek universe for many years totaling over 20 books, the most recent of which is Star Trek The Next Generation - A Time to Die.  His original work has included The Fabulist, The Troll King, The Troll Queen, and The Troll Treasure as well as a turn under the name of Caroline Goode for the book Cupidity.  Internet Speculative Fiction Database for John Vornholt.

Special Media Guest - Bill Blair (The Alien Actor)
If you've watched Babylon 5 or recent Star Trek, you've more than likely seen Bill.  He's been under makeup for most every alien on both series.  He's done work on Alien Nation, Babylon 5 (60+ episodes), Star Trek: Deep Space Nine (35+ episodes), Sliders, Star Trek: Voyager, Enterprise, The Division, and Carnivale.  Before becoming the Alien Actor, he was part of the bands Climax and The Classics IV in the 1970's and his own group, The Expressions, during the 1980's.  In the early 1990's, he ended up in Los Angeles and startinged acting in TV shows with makeup.  He's got lots of stories about his experiences on the sets of all of the shows.  If you've got a favorite alien, he's probably got a picture of him as one.

Local Artist Guest of Honor Gilead
Gilead has been a freelance artist since 1992. He has had a varied career, painting thousands of promotional and seasonal signs and point of sale displays, hundreds of illustrations for role-playing games, and dozens of murals.
"I have been drawing as long as I can remember, but was always told that art was not a 'real job'. So after high school I went to work in the local factory, where I eventually became a manager."
This was followed by a year and a half as a retail manager before finally breaking free and embracing art as a career.
Gilead's background in production lends itself to his art. There can be no "witing for the muse" here, not with deadlines approaching. Gilead views his art as his job and takes it seriously. "If the muse doesn't come to me, I'll go out and find it!"
His familiarity with the retail environment has been a valuavble asset in understanding the needs of his clients, making his signs and displays some of the most effective in the field.

Music Guest of Honor Bill Laubenheimer
Writer of filk songs such as COBOL Programmers Swing, Fortran Programs, and A Norse is a Norse.  He also met his wife Carole on a Caltrain bike car and held their wedding on one..
