BFS Journal - Prism

The BFS Journal is the title for the new hardback quarterly publication from the BFS which will include Dark Horizons, New Horizons and Prism. It was hoped that the first issue would be out for Christmas but unfortunately it won't be ready now from the printers till early in the New Year. As a result I am posting out to all new members who should have received this a copy of the September issue of Prism as a form of apology, together with a letter explaining what has happened.

I think members will like the new publication. It will certainly look impressive and is substantial in size. I just hope that it works out financially compatible with the society's income. I don't know what the printing costs are yet, nor how much it will cost to post, but these are the vital figures. Time will tell.

In the meantime a lot of work has been going on behind the scenes to make sure that a schedule is worked out, together with coordinated formatting work on what we, the editors of the three publications that make up the new Journal, send in, to make sure things flow smoothly and future issues come out like clockwork. An ambitious plan, but one which we can succeed with if we all pull together.
