Alan Stewart

Discovered SF while in primary school, and fandom at University, and haven't left since.  First convention was Aussiecon 2!  I then became involved with the Melbourne Science Fiction Clb and was Secretary for over 20 years straight.  Also edit fanzines 'Thyme' (once a Hugo nominee)and 'Ytterbium' (an ANZAPA zine).  Over 50 poems professionally published, mainly SF or fantasy themed.  I was Bid Chair for the Australia in 99 bid, and am on the board for the 2010 bid.  In 1991 I was the FFANZ delegate to New Zealand, and in 1994 the DUFF delegate to North America where I attended Conadian.
