Larry Elmore has been called the best thing that ever happened to Dungeons & Dragons art (although personally, your proprietor is more of a Trampier man), and we wondered what Elmore's legions of role-playing fans might think if they knew that for the past four years, he's been helping out the Church of Scientology.

This Sunday, Scientology will host its annual "L. Ron Hubbard's Writers and Illustrators of the Future" award ceremony at the Wilshire Ebell Theater in Hollywood.

Back in 2012, we dispelled some of the myths about the contest. Contrary to what some of its participants may like to believe, the contest is very much a Church of Scientology owned and funded project whose sole purpose is to promote Hubbard's image and pretend that his reputation as a science fiction writer is really on par with the contest's illustrious judges.
