JESSE T. AIRAUDI teaches twentieth-century British and American poetry at Baylor University.

He has published on Pound and Wang Yangming in Analecta Husserliana; Milosz and T. S. Eliot in Twentieth- Century Literature; Kundera and Don DeLillo in NeoHelicon; among others. Currently he is working on a study of Wallace Stevens and Andrei Voznesensky, which explores aesthetics and violence, particularly the role of "antiworlds" to disrupt false constructions (what Voznesensky calls "the Fifth Ace," which fantasists undermine with a fictive but more authentic "secondary world."

BRIAN ALDISS, Permanent Special Guest, is famous for his Helliconia trilogy and The Trillion Year Spree, a critical history of science fiction, among many other works. His Frankenstein Unbound has been made into a feature length film. Mr. Aldiss is the winner of many awards for his fiction. He recently published Somewhere East of Life ( Carrol and Graf), which is set in the future and in Central Asia.

EDWARD CARLOS, IAFA's 1994 Guest Artist, earned his Ph.D. in comparative arts from Ohio University.
