Looking for Don Wellman

I bought myself a Monster manuscript off of Amazon last year; it was something I’d always wondered about.  Grenadier Models put it out in 1986 or so, when they were also releasing a series of boxed monster figures; naturally it was a tie-in.  The art in the Monster manuscript was by John Dennett, who also sculpted the bulk of the figures; the text is by Don Wellman, who as far as I know did not publish any other gaming materials. (Too bad — some of the new monster write ups in this are pretty awesome.)

Anyway I’m hoping to get in touch with Mr. Wellman, as I have some questions.

Yes, I tried Google and such. It turns out there are a LOT of Don Wellmans in the world, and I don’t want to bug a lot of people asking them about something so esoteric, so here’s hoping someone in blogosphere will find this and know him…  Leave a comment or email me at mike fullstop monaco et yahoo! period cawm if you can help.  Thanks!

  1. Try digging up the contact info for some of the other Grenadier folks. They might know current contact info for Don. Don was the editor for part of the run of Grenadier Bulletin.

    • Thanks Guy!
      No luck so far. But the question I had for him seems to be moot.

  2. I’ve wondered the same thing, I got my Manuscript off ebay a few years ago and have pored over the lovely drawings and texts, great booklet. Let us know when you find him (driving cabs in Egypt with Dave Trampier?)
