ing numeral. With the 16 pages of color inserts
(not counted in the pagination), it’s also the
first 100-page issue. The original Locus was
conceived as a one-sheet very frequent newsletter.
The one-sheet idea lasted less than 10
issues, although we kept it to 12 pages for most
o f a decade, and the magazine stayed bi-weekly
or better through 1974, when we reduced the
type and went back to four pages. We went
monthly in 1978. If any passing time travellers
told me I would eventually be doing a 100-page
monthly magazine, I would have laughed at
them and accused them o f fraud.
I spent several hours looking at old Loci
(hence the above paragraph), looking up what
the Editorial We said after winning earlier
Hugos. Thank you again for voting for us.
Even though it’s our 13th win, we never take it
for granted. I was very nervous, as usual, sitting
and waiting for the awards ceremony. Locus
becomes more and more of a team effort as it
gets bigger, and there are just too many people
to thank by name – the staff, the columnists,
the collators, and especially the readers who
think we’re still worth their time and money.
