Larry Smith (1946-2017)

Book dealer and conrunner Larry Smith, 70, died January 20, 2017. Laurence C. Smith was born in 1946 and lived in Columbus OH. He co-chaired the Columbus in 1976 Worldcon bid, chaired Marcon for ten years, served as vice-chair of Chicon IV in 1982, and co-chaired the 2010 World Fantasy Convention. He acquired Dick Spelman’s book business in the early ’90s and became a regular fixture in the convention bookselling scene; he often ran the dealer’s room at Worldcon and smaller conventions. He is survived by wife and business partner Sally Kobee.
