issue, at 94 pages including inserts, was
the largest ever. This one, a mere 78 pages
long, is one of the fastest. We got back from the
ABA convention June 2 and had less than two
weeks to complete this issue. Today is June 14,
and this is the last piece being written. It should
(finally) put us back on schedule, for this
month at least. Then there will be the Locus
twentieth anniversary party (along with my
51st birthday), and then it’s off to Arizona for
a couple of days of desert touring before
Westercon. Then it’s back here on July 5 to
work on the next issue.
HELP WANTED HELP
We’ll probably fall behind in July because
we’re short help again. Trevin left in May to
limited, Duncan Long; Revenge of the
Creature Features Movie Guide, John
