their daughter, Michelle Marie on February 22nd. Barb dela Hunty and Jeff
Jagoe have added a son, Flynn Huon to their family. One of Adelaide's
Karamazov Brothers has an appointment at the hitching rail in June. It
must be catching in Adelaide. ASFMA award-winner Adam Jenkins will marry
long-time sweetheart Ruth Purdey in early April. Perhaps to avoid all
this, Michelle Muijsert has returned to Auckland.
Rosaleen Love is now a Woman of Wonder, having got into Pamela Sargeant's
US anthology. Lucy Sussex' review of My Mistress the Queen appeared in
the Age 4/3/95. Lucy Sussex has received a contract from Tor for If I Eat

ON THE BOX
ABC's TVTV took a look at Dr Who on 7/3/95. It featured some footage
from Tri(c)on and some vox populi stuff that appeared to have been from
Melbourne. TVTV also looked at the filming of the new series of Ocean
The Erawan restaurant, was converted back to an eat-in restaurant at,
according to Alan Stewart, higher prices. The pre-Nova Mob dining group
will return there at 6pm first Wednesday of the month.

Damien Warman reports: "As far as Critical Mass goes, the year has been
very quiet, and I am hoping it will pick up. At this stage there is no
speaker slated until May, and even that is tentative. All I can say for
now is that we still meet at the SA Writers' Centre, second floor,
187 Rundle Street, Adelaide, at eight pm on the first Wednesday of
every month. Some folks meet for dinner around 6:30--7 at Five Spices,
a restaurant just below and to the west a touch."
And, from Sundance Bilson-Thompson:"AUSFA still lives, and we won't be
holding another Con for a while :-) ! AUSFA, c/- Clubs Association,
University of Adelaide, North Terrace, Adelaide SA 5001."
