Editorial – November 2023

Well, that’s another month gone, and almost another year. The highlight of November was a trip to London to attend Judith Clute’s book launch and see the Fantasy exhibition at the British Library. On the way back I stopped in Bristol to give a talk for their contribution to the national celebration of fantastic literature.

I probably will put out an issue in December as there’s a lot of stuff I could write about, but it may be a bit short of books as I do need to do some reading for the Crawford Award and as a juror I don’t think I can review books I’m reading for that.

I don’t expect a lot to be happening over the winter. Kevin is rushing from Loscon/Westercon to SMOFcon, but there’s no tradition of winter conventions here. My next con is likely to be Luxcon in April.

In the meantime there should be books. Lyda is almost done on the lesbian space opera book, and I’m almost done on the paper editions of the AngeLINK books.
