Christopher Erickson

Christopher Erickson: By day, EHS professional; by night, fan. I can be found at events throughout the Bay Area in various guises (but mostly The Doctor) taking photos and carousing. When not doing this, I am writing for Science Fiction/San Francisco, browsing the internet for geeky entertainment, reading, sleeping (eventually) and most of all, spending time with my lovely wife.

Lance Moore

Lance thinks his inner kid is pretty pleased that he's done marketing for a Westercon, after starting with a wooden shuttlecraft and a hardcopy fanzine back in the day. He's currently very active in the transgender community, providing support and outreach to newcomers, and putting on a successful one-day conference (with the help of a small army) for CA south bay area trans people and their friends.
