    2012 PLATFORMS

    JUANITA COULSON (London, Ohio, U.S.A.)

    NA nominators: Sue & Steve Francis, Chris Garcia, Joyce & Arnie Katz
    ANZ nominators: Bruce Gillespie, Marc Ortlieb

    “Have done fanzines, filksinging, pro writing. Happy to make friends and break stereotypes. Now in London, ready for Melbourne. Love to bring back opal. May illustrate own trip report. Taught Devra Langsam to hand-cut mimeo stencils, kept my styli which make nice kitchen tools. Sang at Old Ship Inn after Regency Dancing at Brighton Worldcon; lucky some Scots who’d heard Filthy Pierre in hotel bar sing unwise verse of “God Save the Queen” arrived then and realized no murder needed. Very fond of rum-pots, crack-pots, and how are you, Mr. Wilson?”

    Added by NA Administrator: Fan GoH at Reconstruction. Co-edited Yandro 33 years with late husband Buck, 1 Hugo, 10 nominations. With him Fan Guests of Honor at L.A.con I. Brighton trip report in Yandro 250. Filk Hall of Fame; 15 Pegasus nominations; known as a Den Mother. Helped Bjo Trimble invent Art Shows. Eighteen books, 10 shorter stories.

    MURRAY MOORE (Mississaugua, Ontario, Canada)

    NA nominators: Hope Leibowitz, Spike, Art Widner
    ANZ nominators: Cath Ortlieb, Bill Wright

    “I agreed to stand for DUFF to create a race. But I now believe that sending a North American delegate elected instead next year will allow the time necessary for those candidates to be known; for the ballot to be distributed and the money raised through voting; and for the host convention, other hosts, and the North American delegate, jointly to plan an itinerary through which delegate and hosts all get the maximum benefit. Therefore my unusual position is that, if elected on this ballot, I will not attend the Australian national SF convention June 8-11 in Melbourne. Furthermore I encourage you to join me in voting for Hold Over Funds on this ballot.”

    Added by NA Administrator: CUFF delegate to V-Con XXVI, published Trip Report Found in a Plain Manila Envelope. Chair, Ditto XIII. Facilities Division head, Torcon III. Administered FAAn Awards 2006-2008. Invented, administered, and raised funds for HANA, the one-time fund sending a US fan to the Yokohama Worldcon. Member, ANZAPA.
