Taral Wayne is better known behind a keyboard or drawing board than at the front of a room talking, but once started can talk about a wide variety of subjects – his experiences from over 40 years in fandom, the time he was Fan GoH at the 2009 Worldcon in Montreal, his 11 Hugo nominations for best fan artist, his Rotsler Award … or his perversely unimpressive career as a magazine illustrator and comic book artist.

He can bore on the topics of animation, Fraggles, fossils, and planetology. Also about his numerous off beat jobs, and hobbies ranging from model building to die-cast cars, to ancient Roman coins. He can even – under pressure – talk about science fiction.
