Miller (Wraith), Walton Simons (Demise), Edward Bryant (Sewer Jack), Leanne C. Harper (Bagabond), and George RR Martin (Hiram Worchester). Other featured characters include Yeoman, Dr. Tachyon, Popinjay, the Astronomer and his merry band of Egyptian Masons, Kid Dinosaur, Fidel Castro and the Brooklyn Dodgers.
