Hi Don,

I hope you are feeling much better soon and are able to take a good long rest to re-charge your batteries.

It is always good to read your posts and I hope you will continue to look in on casebook now and then?

God bless you.

Default Sad news.

Hello Don,

This is bad news indeed. Worse than bad, since it's for health reasons and not because you'd rather run away to the Seychelles and become a beachcomber than remain a magazine editor. Take good care of yourself, regain your full health and come back to Ripperworld with a new magazine, a non-fiction book or that detective story you've long had in the back burner. We'll be waiting.

Hi Don,

I'm so sorry you are unwell and that you are forced to finish publishing the 'New Independent Review'.

We all wish you a speedy recovery.

Thinking of you.

Hi Don

I hope you will conquer your health problem and return with your magazine restarted and ready to slip back into the groove. You are a much valued member of the boards.

To all:

Thank you so much for your kind wishes concerning my health and the kind words about New Independent Review. More than you might imagine, I am full of hope that I may soon again be back editing and writing. Do remember, though, that a magazine is a collaborative effort and any success NIR achieved was thanks to its dedicated staff and the many wonderful contributors.

Thanks again.

I am not very sanguine about resuming publication at a later date, but as the glib phrase implores, "never say never."

I thank all my the contributors and the many others who encouraged the new venture, especially assistant editor Velma Southerland who was a tower of strength throughout. We had some darn good articles and features and were definitely headed in the right direction.

Anyway, I better not write more at the moment about NIR, lest I get choked up. But again, thanks to all who were a part of the magazine.

Don Souden.
Thank you, Don. You are far too kind for my little contribution. It was a pleasure for me.

All the best, always.
