I can’t quite believe…

I can't quite believe the SH book's actually done. It's the last big project I had left for Strange Horizons, the last of the things I wanted to be sure to get done before I handed the magazine over to Susan. There's undoubtedly going to be some more paperwork-type things to do, on the book and other random little projects, but basically, I'm done. I keep referring decisions to her now. It's a little surreal. Sad, in a way, but a relief too. An awful lot of my brain has been wrapped up with SH for the last four years...

This evening, finish up an interview, finish an article for Cheryl, write up my notes on Brown Girl, maybe start reading Salt Roads. Mostly finishing things. It feels good, finishing things. And there's always new things waiting to be started...

Oh, and by the way -- huge thanks to everyone who donated money to the SH fund drive. We raised $2000+ this time, our biggest fund drive yet. If we can do it again in May, we'll be making a good third of our budget in these small donations -- excellent progress towards our long-term goals. I'm so proud of SH's success, of the way in which we've striven to give something worthwhile to the community, and the community has responded with its support, in so many ways, financial and otherwise.

This magazine has become exactly what I hoped it would be when I started it. How often do you get to say that?
