Most of you reading this know that I'm one of the proofreaders for Emerald City
, Cheryl Morgan's Hugo Award-winning fanzine, which she recently took semi-pro, for reasons described in issue 120. (I'm not going to put a direct link to #120 because pending changes to the site will probably change the direct address; see below.) As I told the folks at BASFA
last Monday, this means that if you want to keep reading the 'zine, you need to contribute something toward the cost of it happening; that night, I collected one annual subscription and a bunch of single-copy contributions, raising a total of $26.
Yesterday, I spent part of the late afternoon proofing the next issue, which is mostly finished. I worry sometimes when I find nothing at all upon which to comment -- I get concerned that I'm not reading closely enough -- but there were enough things in the current draft that made me feel I was doing my job.
Cheryl is also working on a redesign of the magazine and its presentation on the web site, and I've been reviewing and commenting on those as well. I won't say any more about that until she's ready to roll out the changes publicly. She also recently made changes that allow comments to things in the Emerald City weblog
, which will possibly appease some of those people who complained that EmCit
doesn't have a letter column. Current Mood: busy
