Guests of Honor at Gamicon

Kenneth Hite

Kenneth Hite is a full time line developer and writer for Pelgrane Press, creator of Trail of Cthulhu, Night’s Black Agents and Ken Writes About Stuff.

Ken claims to have bought the first copy of Call of Cthulhu sold in Oklahoma City, in August of 1981. Since then, he has moved to dread and night-haunted Chicago, written all or part of seventy or so roleplaying game books (including Nightmares of Mine, Dubious Shards, and Adventures Into Darkness), and acquired the requisite Lovecraftian cat. His “Tour de Lovecraft: The Settings” column appears in Weird Tales magazine; his Suppressed Transmission column explores the Higher Strangeness in Pyramid. He and Robin Laws are the co-hosts of the award-winning podcast Ken and Robin Talk About Stuff.

Steven Groom

Steven Groom first began painting models when he was about 14 years old after his best friend introduced him to miniatures games.

An avid gamer who focuses mostly on tabletop miniatures and role playing games, he currently volunteers for Privateer Press as a member of their Press Gang, focusing on building communities at local game stores for playing games.

Originally from Davenport, IA he moved around quite a bit growing up between eastern Iowa and Central Illinois. He has lived in Iowa City since 1998 and currently works over night at a local non-profit agency.

Steven Groom may or may not be from another planet. Only time will tell if he’s here to save us…or destroy us all.
