One of the Sights at WHC 2006




The Boy George of Genre

This isn't what I meant when I mentioned the hyper-testosteroned lads of WHC, below, but it is another reason to think about World Horror in the way that one might consider bungie-jumping without a cord. This fellow's name is Wilum H. Pugmire the working partner of Jessica Amanda Salmonson. He writes pretty decent Lovecraftian stories. Has the Lovecraft patois down pat.

Heh. I can't even decide the gender of that person.
What character were they portraying, do you know?

Larry Santoro said...

Oh, he was just being a he...and that he just being himself.

Neither World Horror nor World Fantasy are dress-up cons. They're mostly working gatherings for writers in the genre(s). There are those, however, who just feel the need to stretch a point.

Actually, Mel, Larry is right and wrong. For Wilum, that might have been Thursday's outfit (or Friday's, whatever). He dresses in a mix of punk/Harry Potter/Cher.
