Not bad!

 

But curious if it's gnnna be just Len (like Charlie Adler was the solo the year before) or if it's gonna be multipe like in other years.

 

Not that Len Simon isn't interesting all on his own!

Anthrocon tries for at least two GOH every year, but sometimes they just can't get it to happen.

They've added "Digger" artist Ursula Vernon.

Not sure what either one has to do with Felidae (I didn't google it).

On an tangential note, any plans to update this site (https://forums.anthrocon.org/) for 2018?

And a nitpick: "premier" on the main page implies there's more than one...

For what it is worth - FURther CONfusion (FC) did not have any Guests of Honor this year.

Whether the board made the conscious decision to forego having GOH's, or simply couldn't find anyone worthy who was available during the scheduled dates is unknown to me.

As happened with BLFC. In neither case did there seem to be much reaction from attendees, which is a data point we're quietly ticking off.

Anthrocon plans to continue having Guests of Honor for the time being, as we think it is an exceelent tradition and a way to honor individuals we respect and appreciate, and in some cases introduce them to the furry fandom (and often the furry fandom to them!).

That's what I've asked. But he doesn't do conventions. He isn't even on social media.

Frank Welker doesn't even do *interviews*. Rob Paulsen tried to get him on his "Talkin' Toons" podcast (back when he'd go interview voice actors in their homes), but he couldn't talk him into it.

Frank DOES do conventions, but more like...... a very select few. He's nowhere NEAR like J.D. Salinger.

What about people like Weird Al Yankovic or Dan Castelleneta?
