Volume 17, Number 04, Fall 1999


It happens a week or two after each new issue of Prometheus goes into the mail: undeliverable copies come back. The average seems to be around half a dozen per issue. Often they have "forwarding order expired" labels with the new address, but not always.

As a courtesy to the Libertarian Futurist Society, if you are moving, please don't forget to include us in your list of people to notify of your new address. This will let us get your copies to you without delay for remailing. New physical addresses can be sent to us by e-mail, if this is more convenient.

At this time, the following subscribers have no known address: Mike Linksvayer; Tony Middleton, Jr.; and Gary F. York. If any member of the Libertarian Futurist Society knows how to communicate with any of them, please pass along a request for them to get in touch with us.

With the new year approaching, your 1999 subscription is about to run out. If you haven't renewed your membership for 2000, please do so. The list of Prometheus Award nominees will be closed in March, followed by the judges' voting on finalists and by the mailing of finalists to all Advisory members; we need to have a complete list of Advisory members to refer to the publishers. If you can't send in your payment during the holiday season, please plan to do so in January. Direct payments to Victoria Varga (address below); checks and money orders should be made out to the Libertarian Futurist Society.

Do you have the impulse to write? Prometheus can always use contributions. Book reviews are welcome any time, especially reviews of award nominees (or possible future nominees). For other contributions, please inquire. Reviews of works in other media, factual articles on such topics as Internet law and the privatization of outer space, interviews, and works of fiction and verse will all be considered. Shorter items may be submitted for our Letters, News, and Notes section.

Bylined material that is published in Prometheus will be edited with as much restraint as possible. Expressions of personal opinion will be removed from material where they are inappropriate, but not, for example, from reviews, which are supposed to represent the reviewer’s opinion. Contributions will be edited for length if this cannot be avoided. Grammar, orthography, and usage will be revised to suit the preferences of the editor in these matters. In particular, following centuries-old English usage, they/them/their will be used as the third person singular pronoun of indefinite gender.

On behalf of the Editor and of the Libertarian Futurist Society, best wishes to all our members for the last year of the millenium!
