Farmercon 90

I’m finally getting situated after my recent trips to Peoria and Denver, just now realizing I haven’t posted any photos from Farmercon 90. So without further ado…

Tom Josephsohn speaks about what it’s like to have a Grand Master in the family


Gary K. Wolfe entertains with a story about a dark and stormy night with Phil Farmer


The erudite Hans Kieslow, who flew in from Denmark

Me (left) with Rick Lai, pulp historian and creative mythographer extraordinaire (and yes, those are the original Don Ivan Punchatz Riverworld paintings behind us)


Tom in his grandfather’s chair
