Congrats to Michael!
His SF art is my favorite of any! His White Dragon cover is what brought me to reading Anne's books. I am so very happy that he's being inducted! I ran into him at the Seattle airport after Anne's induction and chatted with him for a bit. Such a nice man and talented artist. It's about time he made it into the Hall of Fame.

That he hasn't been inducted prior to now is as ridiculous of a travesty and being unable to find bands such as Rush and Heart in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame!

Well, the SF Hall of Fame was only created in 1996, and they only induct 4 people a year. There are likely a number of people in the SF community that belong in it, but who haven't made the yearly cut yet.

For more info on this year's inductees, plus a list of the all the HOF members, visit the official site.

Whelan's my favorite artist (no offense to you or the other artists here).

He deserved to be in the SFHOF for The Ultimate Sandbox if nothing else...

If I'm recovered from my trip to Illinois to visit my family in June I'll try to make it. Just depends on if I have funds left to make the trip over.

Very well deserved! The Pern dragons I see in my head when I read the books look a lot like Whelan's.

I had them too, but I change banks three years ago and never got new ones. Come to think about I think I still have them somewhere in my room.
