(Via Galactica #7, february 1998, translation: Tatjana Iveges)
NO SF is a regular column of Davor Banovic, one of our previous editors.
Enthusiasm is a great thing. Here for
example, since Kruno and Igor took over editory of our fanzine, its moving full
steam ahead. Theyre asking for aritcles. Promising Via Galactica nr.7 in
February. Lets make a little experiment! If you read this article in February give
all my respects to two of them. By the way, first three issues of VG, Kristek
and myself with collaborators succeeded to publish within, I think, four months. I think
that the editor should be changed often (editors, that is - here in Gaia
its all team work). A subject to think about: Kruno thinks that editor of the
fanzine (in this case VG fanzine) is some kind of title, and that editory of
the fanzine are working all together, democratically.
By the way, that same person wants to do an
interview with Mihaela Velina for VG 7. He asks what should we ask her. I say
to him to ask her what he wants, and he says he wants it all democratically. It
didnt come to me to ask her in what way would taxes influence the price of
Kutikon happened again. I
wasnt there again. Tatjanas writing a report, and there will be some photos if
she gets them well. Ive overheard something of her quarrel with Sale Kristek about
his and Krunos speech about Essekon 97 at Kutikon. It
seems that they forgot to mention some key people. And I wasnt there so I dont
know. Lets leave it there on the level of gossip.
Our president Sale Kristek has resigned
from this vital function. I dont know whos our president now.
Ive read an article from an old (I
mean ex) president of old Gea in the last issue of Via Galactica.
They were more conferencing, and were more partying. I cant believe all of
them were paying their membership fees. When I think of it, it explains the fact that Igor
(who was the member of the old Gea too) collected the money to print
VG number 6 in no time, and there were even some leftovers for nr.7. As you
can see, new taxes didnt have the influence on the price of our fanzine.
Michael Halliday from Lincoln, UK, promised
to come to Essekon 98 to sell books. If he doesnt, shame on him.
There will be more fanzines before Essekon 98. In them I will be writing
more about that significant happening.
And thats it!
