The People of Chattacon 

All guests of honor, panelists, performers, presenters, artists or any other individual who may present in some way at Chattacon are booked in good faith and we have their guarantee that they will appear when we announce they will be at the convention. However, unforeseen events (illness, family emergencies or production work) may cause a particular guest to cancel. 

Gregory Nicoll

Gregory Nicoll is an author and journalist whose work has been honored over the decades in both The Year’s Best Horror and The Year’s Best Music Writing. 

In 2021 he was able to memorably combine both of his specialties in a story called “Chainsaw” which appeared in Gabba Gabba Hey: An Anthology of Fiction Inspired by the Music of The Ramones. Also in 2021, Greg’s enduringly popular short-short “Beer Run” (about the difficulty of shopping for barley pop during the zombie apocalypse) was reprinted in Horror for the Throne: One-Sitting Reads. 

Greg lives in Atlanta with his wife, two crazy dogs, an arsenal of Old West six-guns, and about a million DVDs.
