Katie Bleathman
An Anderson fan since she fell in love with Captain Blue at the age of 8 3/4s , Katie is the Fanderson Events Co-ordinator and an academic librarian who spends a lot of her time communicating via that interweb thingy!

James Fielding
A fan of Supermarionation since the 1970's, James' favorite shows are Four Feather Falls, Thunderbirds, Captain Scarlet and UFO. His career path started when he had a school work placement at Bray Studios on Dick Spanner (see FAB 59). Since then it's always crossed paths with connections to Gerry Anderson, be it in advertising or other media activities. James is also interested in Japanese culture and the worlds of Tokusatsu (live action hero shows like Kamen Rider and Ultraman). So it's only natural that both interests would cross as he has managed to build a unique collection of some rare Supermarionation items from Japan. With an interest in collecting archive film, James has a YouTube channel (www.youtube.com/mrjim) which shows a small collection of rare Anderson related clips he has managed to obtain over the years. He is a contributor to FAB magazine and has recently donated his video archive to Fanderson.

Dr Stephen Baxter
Best selling UK SF author who has published somewhere over forty books, mostly science fiction novels, and over a hundred short stories. His official website is: www.stephen-baxter.com
