Randall Shepherd

Participates in 2 items
Randall  “Randy” Shepherd is known as Randall in Europe, but Randy here in the states (yes, there’s a very good reason). He went to his first science fiction, fantasy and comics convention when he was 14. Using great powers of persuasion (or con artistry) he convinced his parents he should skip school on the Friday in order to take in the whole convention, and has been attending cons ever since.

He has been a professional artist’s model for an award winning anti-nicotine advertisement. He has also shared scenes with the current Superman (Henry Cavill), as well as Henry the VIII and Dracula (Jonathan Rhys Meyers). His Kevin Bacon number is 2.

Despite his dabbling in fame or doing his day job (lawyer) he is fannishly best known for chairing conventions in both Europe and North America. Three time chair of the Irish National Convention Octocon (2005-07), Vice-chair, of the 1997 Worldcon, LoneStarCon 2, and Chair, of the 2013 Worldcon, LoneStarCon 3. There is no truth to the rumor he is looking to chair conventions on the other 5 continents. Here at Worldcon 76 he is co-directing the Hugo Awards Ceremony for the second time.
