Transcript SPECIAL GUESTS HARLAN ELLISON, our Guest of Honor, has been called "one of the great living American short story writers" by the Washington Post, and the Los Angeles Times has said "It's long past time for Harlan Ellison to be awarded the title: 20th Century Lewis Carroll." In a career spanning 27 years, Ellison has won more awards for his 38 books, over 1,000 stories, essays articles and newspaper columns, two dozen teleplays and a dozen motion pictures than any other living fantasist. He has won the Hugo Award 7 1/2 times, the Nebula three times, the Edgar Allan Poe award (from the Mystery Writers of America) , the George Melies fantasy film award (twice), and most recently the Silver Pen for journalism from P.E.N., the international writers union. He is also one of two writers to win the Hollywood Writers Guild Award for Most Outstanding Teleplay three times. He has drawn attention to the art of writing by performing the remarkable feat of actually creating and executing stories in the windows of bookstores (in Paris, London, New York, Boston, Los Angeles and elsewhere); stories that have gone on to win major literary prizes. To gain background for his first novel, dealing with juvenile delinquency, he went under an assumed name and ran with a kid gang in Brooklyn's dangerous Red Hook section for ten weeks. He has covered and written about civil rights marches, riots, photo: MICHAEL J. ELDE RMAN PHOTOWORKS antiwar demonstrations and other scenes of social unrest. His two books of TV essays, The Glass Teat and The Other Glass Teat have sold millions of copies and are currently being taught in media classes in over 200 American universities. Ellison has traveled with such rock groups as The Rolling Stones, and his novel of that scene, Spider Kiss, is called by music critic Greil Marcus, "the finest novel about the world of rock in the past quarter century." In a 1980 landmark lawsuit he sued and beat ABC-TV and Paramount Pictures when they plagiarized a television series he had created. Among his most recognized works, translated into 26 languages, are Deathbird Stories, Strange Wine, Approaching Oblivion, I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream, Web of the City, Love Ain't Nothing But Sex Misspelled, Ellison Wonderland, Memos From Purgatory, and All The Lies That Are My Life. His newest story collection is Stalking The Nightmare, published by Phantasia Press last August. He has recently completed the script for the film version of Norman Spinrad's Bug Jack Barron, to be produced by Universal Pictures under the direction of Costa-Gavras (Missing, Z, State of Siege, Special Section). Ellison's speech, prepared for this assembly, is entitled, "The Curse of the Chambered Nautilus." He will present it Saturday evening in the Ballroom. JAMES GUNN, special guest and member of the Writers' Workshop faculty, is the author of 18 books, 75 short stories, and numerous plays, screenplays, radio scripts, articles and works of criticism. He has also edited anthologies, and has produced the standard biography of Isaac Asimov for Oxford University Press. His stories and novels have been dramatized on radio and television, and The Immortals, made into an ABC Movie of the Week in 1969, became an hour-long television series in 1970. His works have been translated into a dozen languages. Noted as a scholar as well as an author of fiction, Gunn is currently Professor of English at the University of Kansas, and Director of the Center for Science Fiction Studies there. He has served as president of both the Science Fiction Writers of America and the Science Fiction Research Association. He has been Guest of Honor at numerous science fiction conventions, and was given a Special Award for his history of science fiction, Alternate Worlds, at the 1976 World Science Fiction Convention. The same year he won the Pilgrim Award for lifetime contributions to scholarship in the field. He has also served as Chairman of the Campbell Award jury for selection of the best science fiction novel of the year. This is his third year as a special guest of the Conference on the Fantastic, and his second as a member of the Workshop faculty. Gunn also directs an annual summer institute for teachers of science fiction at the University of Kansas. His most recent novel was The Dreamers (1981, Simon & Schuster; retitled The Mind Master, Pocket Books, 1982).
