突然四个问题地球之旅收敛出版,但他们没来约或任何地方开始同时附近。

地球之旅问题41提出托尼·罗切的传奇fanzine英雄无限#8, the地球之旅版本重新包装,并大大增加出版印刷在九月的版本。奖励额外的内容,那些谁已经阅读并享有的硬拷贝评论的字母,还取决于斯坦·李的损失反映,其中包括新增的添加驱动。这是很难知道这个问题的起源,它不会是不公平的说,可能是49年来,当问题7英雄无限发表后,有这个问题8将出现的预期,但在现代时代,这是在二月2017年,是哈灵顿建议,时间已经成熟英雄无限#8托尼所以,它开始和22个月后,问题来了。这是一个光荣的经验,并参与到北安普顿的访问,和会议fanzine读者艾伦·摩尔。

I had expected that we might get the Silicon Valley issue done some time before Worldcon 76. That would have made sense, I thought, but all three editors had commitments to Worldcon 76, albeit my own were tangential and all related to Dublin 2019, Chris was an MC for the Masquerade and Chuck…. Well Chuck had a really quite serious and responsible job at Worldcon 76, as Division Head for member services. I thought it would be so nice to share my favourite Bay Area places with fans before they arrive, and had written notes as early as June. It was well after Worldcon that this issue really took shape, although work had already been started, and I was on my way to San Jose in November when I finished my own long contribution and we saw the issue come together.

I got chatting to Sarah Gulde after Worldcon, definitely in September and thought a Star Trek issue would be a nice idea, Sarah then steered this in a direction that really pleased both myself and Chris and suddenly we also had the title ‘Infinite Diversity in Infinite Combinations’ and some excellent contributions coming in. Michael Carroll expressed some interest when he was engaged about our Instant Fanzine section and provided an amazing image for the and then Front Cover.

Interestingly, I had written another article on “The High Ground.” Despite bashing out 2,000 words on this episode that was banned by the BBC in the UK and RTE in Ireland, and researching it with local fans, both Sarah and Chris felt the article did not fit in with the overall theme of the issue. This is why co-editors are important, I did not need to argue, or discuss it, if they both felt that way, they are probably right, and it can be hard to objectively reflect immediately when one is so close to an item, so you trust your co-editors. This will actually work out well. We have heard by a back channel that someone connected with “The High Ground” was pleased with the issue, which is terribly exciting, and so, maybe it would be better to ask them first about for the article, while another co-editor who contributed shared their passion for Trek, so at some future stage, we may have a better article in another Trek issue, so Chris and Sarah was very right.

One of the real joys about地球之旅is that myself and Chris, are very open to ideas and concepts, and areas of discussion. We cannot always find the energy and enthusiasm we need, to bring an issue to fruition, which is why having co-editors is so vital. The complexity of the workload, and reach of editors and skills they bring vary per issue, is flexible, has to be. Sometimes ideas do not excite, or fail to capture the imagination significantly, but can be returned to, other times, work on an issue goes into hiatus, for any of many reasons. Right now, we have a variety of potential issues in a wide variance of statuses, and know that we can come back to them when matters are right. Everyone involved works very hard and it is a pleasure to see what other voices and opinions can bring to the zine, and this perhaps has something to do with why the fanzines are such fun.

灵活性就是一切,虽然,例如在我们的弗莱恩问题,迈克尔·卡罗尔带领布局。这是因为这个问题有一个绊脚石。我忘了告诉大家多少这个问题我已经在我的头上的工作。事实上,我公司生产的问题,的理念更广泛,上周五12月21日。这将是九天前。

圣诞节期间始终是一个好时机,我得到书面做的,我发现,不仅是工作,但都柏林2019事宜慢足够,这需要思考的时间各种事情可能会发生,每年的反思和检查,对事情如何与都柏林2019年,和写作爱好者杂志是消遣的事情,我可以去,以及发出后,找书,要求输入或即时fanzine贡献,并享受阅读意见书等。那可真的是非常有成效的。

Of course, I should have said to Chris, at least, that a Flann Primer was in my head. You see, there is a lot of celebration occurring next year, At Swim Two Birds is 80 years published, Palimpsests: The fifth International Flann O’Brien Conference at University College Dublin on the 16–19 July and Dublin 2019 is occurring a month later. I would hope that we could garner some interest in the subject of Flann and his writings, and elicit some future contributions for a future far off issue, and so a ‘Primer’ to get people interested was the notion that had concocted in my brain.

它的车身咖啡杂志在Monkstown的早餐,在都柏林南侧与托尼和哈灵顿,虽然托尼是一个迷,他更多的是贝克特的人,如果说实话,那弗莱恩问题上来。

在爱尔兰的美味佳肴,在书堆里的一个神话般的盛宴,我说出了问题的想法,所以它走过来的。当然克里斯,感到震惊。他自己的工作量时间表填满,布局是超越他,但我不会看不到这件事上失败,一旦陷入中断,迈克尔·卡罗尔加紧进行,而事实上现在九天后有做的问题。难以置信。

这是真正精彩。虽然在爱尔兰我花费的时间阅读和研究。幸运的是,我的已故父亲的好书对铁路供应在爱尔兰,所以我能达到的Boocock。

(科林Boocock写的机车纲要爱尔兰,DMU纲要,Irish railways 40 years of changeIrish Railway Pictorial, amongst dozens of others). Johan Anglemark, Val Nolan and Jack Fennel turned up trumps and Pádraig who is a scholar in Flann, had many an item on file and Michael produced a first rate cover to wrap it all up.

等四个问题是到现在为止的上weebly转眼间我希望将在比尔彭斯efanzines.com我将我的转动焦点回到与都柏林2019事宜。

I hope you all enjoy them.
