Fan Guest of Honor – Alice Bentley

We’re bringing Alice home!  Many Chicago area fans were introduced to the fannish community via Alice Bentley’s SF bookstore, The Stars Our Destination, which was open for a glorious fifteen years in Chicago and then Evanston.  In addition, Alice was the Chair for Capricon VIII, IX, and XI.  Alice eventually closed the store and moved to a galaxy…er, city far, far, away – Seattle, Washington.  For her contributions to Chicago area fandom on numerous levels, we are proud to bring Alice back to Capricon 30 as our Fan Guest of Honor!
