    I got involved with fandom through the Tolkien Society and since then have been involved in all facets of fandom, I helped organise SYNCON 77, 78 and 79. I was Nalso the director of FanWar I. I edit the Forerunner, the zine of the SYDNEY SCIENCE FICTION FOUNDATION, publish an APA zine and have contributed to many other zines. As a member of the AUSTRALIA IN 83 Committee I'd like to travel to spread the good word.

    has been among Sydney's best known fen since 1972 ((when he was born again)). He has been official auctioneer at most Australian conventions from Aussiecon onwards and is well-known for his love, nay, passion, for books (and silverfish). He is Australia's book searcher par excellence.

    Nobody has been more active in support of DUFF. Keith has probably raised more money for DUFF than any other three people in Australia. Keith has been active in the AUSTRALIA IN 83 bid from the beginning and is currently the Director of Australian fan relations.
