SWINGING SYDNEY FANDOM
Eric Lindsay reports visiting US West Coast fan Fred Patten was attacked by a
damper while dining with Sydney fans. He was saved by Nick Stathopoulos.
Fred was a featured speaker at a conference on furry humanoid animals.
Rich and Linda McAllister, Silicon Valley fans, will be in Sydney from 22nd
March, and are expected at Galaxy and after on Thursday, following a trip
to the Blue Mountains and dinner with Marilyn Pride, Lewis Morley, Jean
Weber, Eric Lindsay and others. The visitors report that, as far as they
know, they are not allergic to ferrets. Jean and Eric expect to be
visiting the USA before Easter, and will attend Corflu, the fanzine
convention in Las Vegas. The pair will also visit Seattle and Silicon Valley.
PAT & ROGER SIMS WIN DUFF
The votes were fairly evenly divided in Australia, but strongly biased
towards the Sims in the U.S.. Roger and Pat will be at Thylacon. Alan
Stewart will publish details on the voting and their itinerary. Another
DUFF candidate, Lucy Schmeidler, plans to attend Thylacon.
As of issue #12 The Australian SF Writers' News ceases to be. It will be
incorporated in Aurealis. The following comes straight from #12. Julie
Haydon's first book "Lines Upon the Skin" will be published by Pan Macmillan
in June. Penguin have published Allan Baillie's children's novel "Magician".
Damien Broderick has been awarded a Category A one year fellowship by the
Literature Board of the Australia Council. Shane Dix, Dirk Strasser, Sean
Williams & Steven Paulsen have all sold to the British magazine Beyond:
Fantasy and Science Fiction. Dirk and George Turner have been published
in a German anthology "Die Pilotin".. Stephen Dedman has sold a story to
Ellen Datlow's anthology "Little Deaths: Tales of Horror and Sex".
ON THE BOX
TVTV (28/3/95) did another piece on Star Trek, including footage from a
Sydney Trek Convention that featured Walter Koenig & Gates MacFadden.
Featured in the report was comedian Steady Eddy who paid lots for an
autographed photo of Nimoy & Shatner.
