Each Worldcon selects a small number of Guests of Honor for the highest recognition that the event can grant, essentially a Hall of Fame for the science fiction and fantasy field. MidAmeriCon II has chosen to honor Kinuko Y. Craft, Patrick Nielsen Hayden, Teresa Nielsen Hayden, Tamora Pierce, and Michael Swanwick. All of our guests have made great contributions to the world of science fiction and fantasy and we are so pleased to be able to celebrate and honor these contributions with them in Kansas City. In addition to our Guests of Honor, our Toastmaster is the superb Pat Cadigan.
