Introducing our National Guest of Honor

VillainCon is proud to announce Grant Watson is our National Guest of Honor.

Grant Watson is a playwright, actor, director, critic and fan, but not necessarily in that order. He is a two-time winner of the William Atheling Jr Award for SF Criticism and Review and a multiple recipient of the Ditmar and Tin Duck awards. In 2010 his political thriller Cry Havoc was awarded Best New Play at the Perth Theatre Trust Guild Equity Awards. His other plays include Degree Absolute, Serpentine and adaptations of Richard III, King Lear and Frankenstein. He can currently be found talking about film at The Angriest blog, Eiga: Asian Cinema, and on his shamefully irregular Bad Film Diaries podcast. In 2011 he celebrates his 20th anniversary in organised science fiction fandom.

Welcome aboard Grant. Release the Flying Monkeys!
