    1985 PLATFORMS

    Eve Harvey

    Any fandom that can produce Justin Ackroyd and persuade Joseph Nicholas to get married I just gotta see! But why should Aussie fandom want to meet me? Well, after 11 years in fandom, over 30 fanzines and 3 concoms (including Worldcon 1979), I eventually learned how to relax and have now perfected the art of propping up a con bar whilst simultaneously talking to anyone willing to listen. Hence I'm a typical British fan, but with the "get two for the price of one" special offer -- vote for me and you get John too! Finally, I'm hopeless at excuses so I'll have to do a trip report.

    Nominated by: Jim Barker, Roelof Goudriaan, Jack Herman, Bob Shaw and Jean Weber.

    John Jarrold

    Well, yes, I like drinking. In fact, I like drinking quite a lot. I also like talking, partying and Fay Dunaway, not necessarily in that order. I've produced a dozen or so issues of my fanzine Prevert, various apazines, and been on the committee of Mexicon, of which you will have heard glowing reports, I'd like to meet all you Australians, and I think you ought to vote for me. I certainly would if I had the chance.

    Nominated by: Leigh Edmonds, Dave Langford, Marc Ortlieb, Simon Ounsley and Sue Williams.
