'''Stephanie Osborn''' is a former payload flight controller, a veteran of over twenty years of working in the civilian space program as well as various military space defense programs. Stephanie is retired from space work and has moved on to be a heck of a writer. She's been know to claim she's still fairly new at this "author stuff," but that's getting harder to take seriously all the time when you look at the body of her work. Her website—[http://www.Stephanie-Osborn.com www.Stephanie-Osborn.com]—lists a huge array novels (some co-authored with the likes of Travis S. Taylor, Darrell Bain, or Darrell Osborn), short fiction,  poetry, nonfiction, and even a YA fantasy. Stephanie was a major hit as our Mistress of Ceremonies at Con†Stellation XXX in 2011—so much so that she's become our semi-permanent MC :-)

But we've invited the trio as this year's Fan Guests of Honor in large part because they had the nutty idea to throw together a bid to bring the 50<sup>th</sup> DeepSouthCon{{Whatis|DeepSouthCon}} to Huntsville and to provide the bulk of the committee from across the southeast rather than asking Huntsvillians to fill all the key roles. That means we have a con to go to right here in town that we don't need to run. Cool. Sounds worth honoring to us!

'''Stephanie Osborn''' is a former payload flight controller, a veteran of over twenty years of working in the civilian space program as well as various military space defense programs. Stephanie is retired from space work and has moved on to be a heck of a writer. She sometimes clams she's still fairly new at this "author stuff," but if so you wouldn't know about it by looking at the body of her work. Her website—[http://www.Stephanie-Osborn.com www.Stephanie-Osborn.com]—lists over a dozen novels (some co-authored with Travis S. Taylor or Darrell Bain) and a small handful of anthology appearances. Stephanie was such a big hit as our Mistress of Ceremonies at Con†Stellation XXX in 2011 that we've asked her to do it again :-)

'''Gerald W. Driggers''' is an Aerospace Engineer who lays claim to being a space visionary and who enjoys touring North America by travel trailer with wife Carol and Wilson the cat. Gerald was heavily involved in space launch and colonization efforts in the 1960s and 1970s, before realizing that industry and government leadership did not share his vision for the future. Events, he says, validated his concerns, and he subsequently enjoyed careers in various engineering pursuits. Gerald now expresses his insights and visions for human evolution in space through science fiction. For details, search the web for “gerald w. driggers” or he invites you to visit his blogs at [http://Earth-Mars.com Earth-Mars.com] and [http://spaceagedropout.com spaceagedropout.com] (though the latter is still under construction).
