Westercon 72 is pleased to announce Eric Flint as a Special Guest.
Eric Flint’s writing career began with the science fiction novel Mother
of Demons. His alternate history novel 1632 has led to a long-running
series with over thirty novels and anthologies in print. He’s also
written many other science fiction and fantasy novels. He resides in
northwest Indiana with his wife Lucille.
