Peter Pixie, Master of Ceremonies

PeterPixieBWThe paramount of performers and the pride of the plains – Peter Pixie is THE host with the most!

A world famous “Ringmaster of Renown” Peter has been seen in various forms of reality -known to most as Conventions and Ren Faires – cavorting with Mermaids, Lords and Ladies of the Neo-Victorian era as well as the Renaissance, Mad Scientists and their creations, and just happens to be close personal friends with various creatures from the worlds of Anime and Science Fiction.

Peter Pixie has worked with so many amazing people over the last 13 years and looks forward to convention season every year because he loves meeting old friends and making new ones. Whether he’s the Master of Ceremonies or Town Crier, if Peter’s hosting the event, you can be guaranteed a good time will be had by all!

Alex Woolfson, Writer, Artifice/Young Protectors

Alex Woolfson grew up loving science-fiction and action movies, but never got to see what he really wanted to see—kick-ass genre stories with real heroes who just happened to like other guys. After Alex started a successful career as a filmmaker in the Bay Area, he soon realized the best way to make the “big-budget” adventure stories he craved would be as full-color comics.

He is bringing his Lambda Literary Award nominated gay science-fiction graphic novel, Artifice, along with the first volume of his gay superhero thriller, The Young Protectors, to AhnCon. He’s thrilled to be at Ahn!Con this year with copies of Engaging the Enemy, the first collected edition of The Young Protectors.
