Editorial Matters
It’s been a longer, harder road than usual this
month. We spent most of a week in London, most
of a week at Conspiracy in Brighton, most of a week
at CactusCon in Phoenix, and then two solid weeks
putting this issue together and taking care of
emergencies. I’m scheduled to leave for the
Frankfurt Book Fair October 6th, returning on
October 14th, and will rush through the next issue
before going off to the World Fantasy Convention.
After that, I think I’ll hibernate until March.
Next month’s issue will probably be just as late as
this one. It will probably be mailed at the very end of
October, just as this one will barely make
September. It will feature our own worldcon/
NASFiC coverage with lots of photos, plus written
reports by Pascal Thomas, Mike Glyer, Karen
Haber, Jane Jewell, Dave Clark, and maybe others.
We would also like to squeeze in more of the
moldering foreign material on hand on Polish and
Soviet sf, as well as short interviews with Patrick Tilley
and Richard Tooker. We also have a list of
British forthcoming books, a convention list, a
report from Argentina, and a good many photo stories
on hand.
The front page story on the John W. Campbell
and Theodore Sturgeon Memorial Awards should
have been credited to Elizabeth Anne Hull.
Richard Curtis has no column this issue, but will
be back again in November.
I should be writing up my talks with publishers,
describing my impressions of the British publishing
scene, and talking about sf. But it will have to wait
until at least next month. I’ve been visiting London
for 30 years, and for the first time I took some time
off to sightsee. Carolyn and I visited the National
Gallery, the British Museum, and the Tower of
London. Proof of the latter is shown below.
Carolyn and I were on our way to Britain during
the last mailing. The rest of the staff made do with
help from a smaller than usual group – Joan
Gaustad, Russ Elliott, and Barbara Clifford. They
got pizza. -C.N. Brown
