||Walter H. Hunt is a Boston native who is a science
fiction author, with four books in publication: The Dark Wing,
The Dark Path, The Dark Ascent, and The Dark Crusade, from
Tor Books. These novels are set in a future when humankind
has spread to the stars and encountered other alien races. His
latest book, A Song In Stone, is not a part of the science fiction
series, but instead deals with the music encoded in the
stone carvings of Rosslyn Chapel, taking the reader along on a
fourteenth-century Templar pilgrimage. It will be published just
before the convention. For more information on Walter and his

||Ricky Dick started attending cons
in 1979 and immediately hooked up with the fannish costuming
community. His costumes have always relied on interesting

besides making costumes, he also judges and MC’s many
masquerades, including Arisia in 1998 and 2004. Ricky was
awarded the ICG’s Lifetime Achievement Award in 2005.
