    What would the field be like without Locus Magazine?  Impossible to know really because for over 40 years Locus has defined and documented the history of SF & Fantasy fiction, and along the way has probably been a little responsible for some of the direction the field has taken.

    All the news, reviews and interviews you could want, wrapped up in a tidy little package each month… thanks to the hard work and efforts of Charles N. Brown and company.  For his contributions to the field, Charlie deserves to be remembered right alongside the names of Asimov, Clarke and Heinlein…

    –Thanks for everything Charlie.
