mystery-panel

Back on February 22, we posted this image, which was the subject of a book giveaway contest by the Overlook Connection. To win, entrants had to name the convention, the year, and the identities of the participants. The contest is now over and the Overlook has announced the winners, so it’s time to solve the mystery. The panel took place at the 1989 World Fantasy Convention. It was entitled “The Zombies or the Grateful Dead,” and the topic was ’60s rock & roll and its influences on the then-current crop of horror writers. The panelists from left to right were Ed Bryant, George R. R. Martin, Karl Edward Wagner, Howard Kaylan (of Flo & Eddie and The Turtles), John Shirley, and Robert McCammon. More images from the 1989 World Fantasy Convention, including several more from this panel, can be found here.
