Editorial Matters
I haven’t had to a p o l o g i z e for late
issues in a long time. Both last issue
and this one are a week late. We’re
still short of help (we will eventually
hire one more person), and we’ve m a naged
to add more pages than eve r b e fore.
T h e s e two issues h a v e more text
and fewer ads than usual. I wanted to
c o m p l e t e the w o r l d c o n c o v e r a g e in two
issues instead of three. As is, we
still have excellent photos left over,
and even some minor pieces of text.
We a l s o h a v e a lot of items which
h av e been pushed out of the last two
issues, i n c l u d i n g Joe and Gay H a l d e –
man’s report on Yugoslavia and Eurocon,
a report on the Japanese national conv
e n t i o n inc l u d i n g a look at Japanese
fandom by James Hogan, a piece by Eli z abeth
Anne H u l l on the So v i e t Writers
conference, a look at original French
and French C a n a d i a n books by Pascal
Thomas, a report on the French P h i l i p
K. Dick Symposium, c o v e r a g e of sf in
Hong Kong by Jean Luntz, more Soviet
news, interviews with Malc o l m Edwards
and Boris Strugatsky, etc. We sho u l d
end up with a m o s t l y i n t e rnational
issue next time. We’ll a l s o h a v e the
W o r l d Fant a s y Awards, and m aybe a r e port
on the W o r l d Fant a s y Convention.
I’ll be heading for Providence the day
after this issue goes into the mail.
