VCon 41 panel: "How'd that get on my Cover? Join the Art Show Director and several Authors, Editors and Publishers (including the Author, Editor, and Art Director GoHs) as they discuss how cover art is chosen, what the artists are told, and which parts of the book are used for inspiration (if any)."
VCon Guest write ups: Robert J. Sawyer: VCON 41 Author Guest of Honor. Born in Ottawa in 1960, in his youth Robert dreamed of becoming a paleontologist specializing in dinosaurs, but upon discovering only about a dozen people worldwide made a living doing that, he decided to become one of the several hundred people making the big bucks—which is to say surviving—on a science fiction writer’s income.
