Included Contributers REVEALED!

The 40 Years of Gen Con book went off to press on Saturday, so I'm pleased to be able to announce the names of the story and photo contributors who were included in the book. Please note that ALL photo contributors for the book are listed here ... since some people sent their submissions to me personally instead of via the website.

Also note that because of the huge number of contributors -- there are over 120 people listed in the credits! -- I'm not able to say exactly which of your photos or stories were included. Everyone on this list will be receiving a complimentary copy of the book, though, so it's just a matter of waiting for it to come out in August. Comp copies will be available for pickup at the Gen Con Indy gift shop. I'll be sending out individual emails to everyone with the specifics sometime before Gen Con, so please be patient ... and don't worry, we can mail your book to you if you're not going to be at Gen Con.

Congratulations to everyone, and thanks for your help!
