And welcome to the third issue of Brushstrokes, the Progress Report for Syncon 92, the National Science Fiction Convention, for 1992.
Well there is only nine months to go and believe me time does seem to fly. The convention itself is slowly pulling into shape. We have secured the Shore hotel as our convention site (more about that elsewhere in the PR), with what we consider to be very reasonable room rates. Convention programming is well on track, Competitions have begun, publications and advertising are all go, even the Ditmars are almost finished. Not surprisingly we are looking forward to a short break at Legends.
Speaking of the Ditmars this issue of Brushstrokes contains the first instalment in our promised listing of Books, Anthologies, short stories and other woks published in Australia in 1991. Obviously this listing is not complete, if you know of any works not listed please contact us at the convention address.
I think that’s all for me now, all I can close with is what I said last time, what we need is members, so get out there and spread the word to your friends, your brothers, sisters, mothers, fathers, grandparents and yes even your pets (cats, dogs, rocks, gestetners…. we’re not fussy), about Syncon 92, a convention not to be missed.
