    1987 PLATFORMS

    Valma Brown

    I want to shout at Dave Langford and go to dinner as requested by Hazel Langford. I want to meet all those beaut British fans I missed at Aussiecon, see the ones I did meet and meet all the ones that Maggie wouldn't let out. I have a soft spot for British accents and because of this weakness Leigh Edmonds will be accompanying me to make sure I come back. I have been involved in fandom since 1971. I am currently co-editor of Fuck the Tories and co-publisher and boss of The Notional. I like conventions, fans and parties where I can talk to people. I love talking to people.

    Nominators: Hazel Langford, Joseph Nicholas, Marilyn Pride, Yvonne Rousseau and Grant Stone

    Irwin Hirsh

    Unbearded, and hatless at conventions, Irwin nevertheless possesses all the qualities to be a worthy fan fund winner and a fine administrator. In 9 years he has published 100+ fanzines, including Sikander, Thyme (with Andrew Brown), and for 6 apas and has been a member of 3 convention committees, including the running of a Worldcon film programme. His other interests include films, music, fine art, sports, fine food, and making good use of metropolitan transit systems as a way of discovering cities. A freelance eassistant film editor, Irwin would like to be Australia's Steven Spielberg when he grows up.

    Nominators: John Foyster, Carey Handfield, Dave Langford, Marc Ortlieb, and Arthur Thomson

    Jean Weber

    Having discovered fandom at Aussiecon One, I have been publishing WeberWoman's Wrevenge since 1980. I am an enthusuastic apahack and book reviewer, an organiser of conventions until I learned better, have been Editor of ANZAPA for two years, and am suspected of a prurient interest in other people's personal relationships. I'm well-known for my feminist views, my (lack of) taste in rum, and my dislike of large groups (so why do I enjoy conventions?). How much of the above is true? Bring me to Conspiracy in 1987 and find out - if you dare. (Trip report within one year.)

    Nominators: Sally Beasley, Leanne Frahm, Joy Hibbert, Cath Ortlieb, and Sue Thomason.
