Once again we’ve slipped back in the schedule a bit, which is down on me—I’ve had the issue 90 percent finished since before the latest Work Weekend but I just couldn’t get it together to pull it across the finish line. Part of that delay was due to being blocked on this editorial, ironically.
We’re running low on material for upcoming issues. Part of this is that I’ve found it very difficult to send out review copies. Over the last few years, assigning books to reviewers was one of the few things David Hartwell regularly took a hand in, and I’m sure that on some barely conscious level I was flinching away from working on it. But we’ve got a big batch of books heading out the door now—good books! Books that should be reviewed!—and I have faith that they’ll come back as happy insightful reviews.
