Con Fusion ’94 Progress Report Two

Here is some transcription from Con Fusion ’94 Progress Report Two. (The guest of honour listed in this progress report is not the one they wound up with at the convention.)

The cover features art by Amy Pronovost of some sort of anthropomorphic animal wearing a Red Dwarf T-shirt, with a yoyo that is a sphere of the Earth with Australia foremost. The animal is saying “Incorporating Swancon 19”. Text at the bottom says “The 19th Annual Perth SF Convention”. The PR is dated November 1993.
