Christopher Stasheff is the author of more than 60 books, short stories, and anthologies in a career that has spanned over fifty years. He published his first book The Warlock in Spite of Himself in 1969. Other popular works include A Wizard in Bedlam (1979), Her Majesty’s Wizard (1986), and A Company of Stars (1991), which finally made his PhD in Theatre useful in his primary career. He also spent over 20 years teaching Radio and TV Broadcasting. Although he has retired from teaching he continues to write. His works are now being published as ebooks with the help of his son, Edward. However, he considers his greatest achievement to be his family including his wife Mary, four children, five grandchildren, and two cats.
In 2008 he was diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease. Although this affects both his memory and mobility at times, he is determined to keep writing. Talking with fans, speaking on panels, and simply being around people who share his interests and hobbies has proven to be the best medicine for him and he will continue to go to conventions as long as his doctor allows him to travel. He has said many times that when he walks into the bustling lobby of a SFF convention he feels like he has come home.
We here at AnachroCon would like to announce the official retirement of one our original founders, and our original Con Chair, William MacLeod.
William has held many roles in the workings of AnachroCon since its beginning in 2009. He remained Chair of the convention for six years, and later co-chaired the convention with his wife, Cindy MacLeod.
After years of hard work and dedication to AnachroCon and its attendees, the time came to step down as Chair completely, and focus on himself after a car accident that adversely affected his health.
William remained part of the convention in a somewhat smaller capacity, lending his skills and talents wherever he could. Recently, however, though his health has much improved, William is now retiring from AnachroCon to focus on taking care of his mother who is battling lung cancer. He will be taking a vacation with Cindy during the 2017 show.
AnachroCon will be moving forward; full steam ahead under the leadership of its current Con Chair, Sarah Avraham.
We kindly ask that you respect Williams’s privacy during this time.
William MacLeod, with his family. Wife – Cindy Daughters – Kathryn and Amber.
