    I just received my copy of Sword and Sorceress 34. The editor, Elisabeth Waters, states in the first line of her editorial that "This will be the last volume of Sword and Sorceress....." She goes on to explain that she is ready to retire (retirement? what is that?) and then mentions the difficulties of paying royalties to deceased writers with complicated or non-existent estates. The publisher's website declares that they have no intention to publish any more anthologies.

    I have been working my way through this series for a few years now and I, of course, do not want to see it end. If any of you with contacts in the publishing industry have any thoughts, please share them here. One fan expressing sorrow will not be enough to get someone else to purchase and continue the series. (great Airplane! set-up here if anyone wants to run with it) Surely we can't let this great series die, can we?
