Dragon*Con founder, accused pedophile is in deep doo-doo

Ed Kramer
In one of my earliest CL cover stories, I wrote about Ed Kramer, the founder of Dragon*Con, who was under house arrest awaiting trial on charges that he molested two teenage brothers.

That was nine-and-a-half years ago. Since then, Kramer has filed countless legal motions, fired numerous sets of attorneys, tried to have himself declared physically incapacitated — anything to put off having to go to court to face a jury.

Well, it looks as if Kramer is going to have difficulty delaying justice any longer. The AJC reports today that the dwarfish sci-fi impresario was caught in a Connecticut hotel room with a 14-year-old boy. Oops. Can you say "bond violation?"

I've long wondered how someone under house arrest could get around as much as Kramer. I last bumped into him in 2008, when he attended a banquet thrown by the Libertarian Party of Georgia honoring their homegrown presidential candidate, former Congressman Bob Barr. Dressed in black, Kramer wheeled around the ballroom on a mobility scooter and sported a breathing tube.

But the hi-larious AJC story quotes Gwinnett County DA Danny Porter, Kramer's legal nemesis for the past 11 years, as saying the diminutive defendant was seen hiking trails without so much as a cane.

I can't wait to see what happens next.
