WFC Appearance

This is what I'm doing at WFC:

FRIDAY, 11 AM. City Center C

The Author as Legend. Sometimes the author seems, as Lovecraft was said to be, "his own most fantastic creation." Our sense of who the author was completely colors our view of his work. Think of Lovecraft, Robert E. Howard, Franz Kafka, or Philip K. Dick. Can an author create his legend intentionally, an artificial persona, or is that just phony? Can the author's life be separated from the text? Should it be?

Benjamin Peek, George Scithers, Gary K. Wolfe


Yes, I don't know why I'm listed as Benjamin, either. Ah well. Apparently you get one appearance at WFC, so this is mine.
