Steve Stiles became a science fiction fan in 1957; he’d been illustrating fanzines from then until his death, earning him the first Rotsler Fan Artist Award in 1998, and a Fan Artist Hugo in 2016. Professionally, he worked in numerous comic book genres since 1973 (horror, super hero, science fiction, humor), including the award-winning Xenozoic Tales and perhaps the first steampunk graphic novel, The Adventures of Professor Thintwhistle, with author Richard Lupoff. His most recent projects included work on an anthology of his underground strips, The Return of Hyper Comics, and a 200 page historical graphic novel. See more about his work at stevestiles.com/. A regular at Balticon, Steve will be greatly missed.
