So as I rather cryptically indicated in a Facebook status update last week, I’ve got an announcement.
The Georgia legislative session has been exhausting, but we’re coming up on the final week. During this chaotic and stressful time, I’ve been doing some reflection upon managing priorities and the proportion of time I dedicate to The Fix, and I’ve come to the conclusion that I need to devote more time to my writing than helming The Fix allows me. So it is with both regret and sadness that I am announcing that I am stepping down as its editor.
Effective immediately, Fix-related correspondences, review material, and other Fix business should be directed to:
5 Martins Lane
Cambs CB6 2LB
I’ll be staying on for a little while in an advisory capacity in order to ease the transition and to help disseminate the backlog of hard copy review material that I’ve received. So I’m not disappearing completely from The Fix‘s ranks.
Any review material I have received or will continue to receive while everyone updates their address books will be forwarded to reviewers; editors and publishers need not send additional review copies.
It has been an honor and a pleasure editing The Fix and having the opportunity to work with its many talented reviewers, writers, and columnists. I’m greatly looking forward to seeing The Fix continue to flourish and publish its insightful commentary, reviews, and articles well into the future.
That couldn’t have been an easy choice. Congrats on everything you’ve accomplished at The Fix. It’s a great resource.
Hi, Eugie. I don’t know Marshall, but I know you have been a pleasure to work with. I don’t think it’s a bad choice that you will devote more time to writing, though. The world can use more of it.
Best wishes, Eugie, and thanks for all you’ve done.
I’m sad to see you go as editor of The Fix, glad to see it means we’ll be able to enjoy more of your writing! Best of luck in all your endeavors.
I’m sure Marshall will do a great job, he’s a fantastic guy.
It’s been wonderful working for you, Eugie! I hope this is one less hungry hamster you have to deal with, but I’m glad to see you leaving The Fix in good, capable hands. Hope you get more and more writing done!
Good for you for having the brains to let a couple of hamsters run free.
Too much juggling is bad for you and annoying to the hamsters. I’m sure The Fix will continue to thrive and you’ll be that much more sane! (Or as sane as we writer-types can get.)
