So it is with a heave heart that I say goodbye to Flying Island Press. The new Managing Editor, Philip Carroll, is a great man and has been a friend of mine for a long time. I know he will do great things with it. I wish him and the rest of the crew the best of luck in the future. I hope that they can continue to take fiction where we all want to go.
Those are my hopes and dreams and fears for Balticon. If you are going I look forward to seeing you, if not then I hope to see you in years to come.
