Three high-profile names in SF have also contributed appreciations of three of our guests of honour: Michael Swanwick on David Hartwell; Orson Scott Card on Tom Doherty, and Cory Doctorow on Neil Gaiman. We are also providing more information on member services; updated membership rate information (including weekend-only admission prices), a list of attending authors, artists and other professionals, and the proposed agenda for the WSFS business meeting. The cover art is by our Fan Guest of Honour Taral Wayne. Paper copies of PR #4 will be mailed to those members of Anticipation who have requested one.
