AUSTRALIA IN '99
Looking at the finance report presented at the July committee meeting, the
bid needs more support, particularly in the form of members. Alan Stewart
will be assisting on the bid table at Conadian and will be helping our
agents run bid parties. A membership form will appear with the next
Bullsheet, but, for further info, contact the committee P.O. Box 99,
Bayswater, Vic 3153.
Gardiner Dozoiss The Years Best SF 11 has one Australian Story Greg Egan's
"Chaff" Australians to appear in the recommended reading list are Sean
McMullen (2); Greg Egan (2 more); Bart Meehan, Sean Williams, Rosaleen
Love, Terry Dowling, Stephen Dedman, George Turner & Dirk Strasser (1).
Sean Williams collection of three novellas Doorway to Eternity
(MirrorDanse Books) is now available.
Ron Clark reports that The Mentor (see zine listing) will no longer be
printing fiction. Ron is the proud owner of a brand new mortgage and needs
to cut down on fanzine costs. He will also be pruning his mailing list.
A in '99 bid chair, Alan Stewart, starts his DUFF trip on August 14th.
His itinerary includes Conadian. Other Australian Conadian attendees
include Sarah Murray-White. Rumour has it that occasional Australian
resident Stephen Boucher is also gallivanting through the U.S. convention
season. Perry Middlemiss and Robyn Mills are heading for the U.K. for a
month and Lucy Sussex and Julian Warner are off to Canada and the U.S..
FUTURIAN VENUE CHANGE
The Futurian Society of Sydney has moved to Room 1615 University of
Technology, Broadway, Sydney 7-00pm. Their dinner venue is now The Old
Windsor Tavern, Castlereigh St, Sydney.
CONducktor has released details of its programming including the gaming
and video program details.
Ali Kayn offered to put a copy of The Bullsheet in each of the
Concinnity 95 convention bags. She said I'd need to print her 1,000 copies.
Despite a couple of Melbourne sightings of Thylacon committee member Robin
Johnson, the con is emulating its mascot a tad too well. There are hopes
that it can be cloned from fossilized DNA from one of Peter Nichols' cigars.

My apologies to those who have tried to e-mail me of late. The Ausom BBS has
suffered problems, first with a new serial card and, more recently with the
mail feed from Deakin. Hopefully these problems will be ironed out REAL SOON
NOW. Please note the change in e-mail address.
