Philcon 2018 has ended
Welcome to Philcon 2018!

Richard Stout

Richard premiered his trilogy of kid spy movies featuring James Blond, Agent Uh-Oh 7, at Philcon, beginning with 1993's LEARNER'S PERMIT TO KILL. His horror makeup/special FX workshop "Monsters, Aliens, and Spirit Gum" has been popular both here and at I-Con. He and his wife Kathryn run an educational publishing company, and while she is the brains of the outfit, she allowed him to co-author MOVIES AS LITERATURE. Among his more recent publications are half a dozen comic poems and a short story that appeared in ELLERY QUEEN MYSTERY MAGAZINE. Richard has also published the occasional cartoon. Oh, and his singing voice has been heard by a few hundred thousand: Howard Stern once played one of his song parodies on the air.
