Yvonne Rousseau

Australian fan, perhaps best known for commentary on Joan Lindsay's novel Picnic at Hanging Rock in her tongue-in-cheek The Murders at Hanging Rock (1980); when the long suppressed final chapter of Picnic was published as The Secret of Hanging Rock (1987), she contributed a new essay to this booklet. Another solo book is her critical study of Cherry Wilder, Minmers Marooned and Planet of the Marsupials: The Science Fiction Novels of Cherry Wilder (1997).

Partner of John Foyster, and member of the Science Fiction Collective which edited the second series of Australian Science Fiction Review, to which she produced an exhaustive index. Fan Guest of Honour at Confictionary.
