All of us at Voyager are saddened to hear of the death of Charles Brown, publisher, editor, and co-founder of Locus magazine.
Our condolences to his family and friends and our best wishes to those who will continue to publish Locus magazine.
“A magazine needs constant change. It needs the editor to look at each issue as an outsider and see what should evolve — change the emphasis, the look, etc. It should be done slowly, but it should be done. Ian Ballantine was the most successful and innovative publisher ever, but he also said that when you got something right was the time to start worrying because it would only be right for a little while. It’s why I’m turning more and more of the magazine over to other people, why I’m retiring as writer and editor. I’ll still be involved as publisher, but others have to supply that outsider/insider look. Now I’ll be able to step back and look at the magazine and laugh at myself, because if you can’t laugh, you’re in trouble.” Charles Brown, September 2002, Locus interview
