Guest of Honor Questions

  • How does Anthrocon choose its Guest of Honor each year?
  • The process by which we select a Guest of Honor is similar to a papal conclave and just as mysterious. Many factors are considered -- everything from their availability to budgetary concerns. There are literally dozens of people that we would like to consider in any given year, however we can only choose two or three. We hope that no one views it as a slight if we do not select a particular person. It is almost always a matter of "not quite right for this year".

    We still welcome suggestions, although we prefer those to be emailed to us, rather than discussed on public forums, since the latter often leads to misunderstandings.
