- A Last Minute Rant From The Editor (no editor’s notes this issue)
I’m most happy to report that Ken Fermoyle will be working with me through the remainder of 2003 and will be taking my place as editor of The IOBA Standard in 2004.
Ken has worked with me on the last several issues and has done a wonderful job. He’s enthusiastic, dedicated, smart and very, very talented. He has tons of experience in editing and writing, and lots of contacts in the book and writing worlds. I’m absolutely positive Ken will produce an excellent magazine that just keeps on improving, changing and growing in value to its readers and to IOBA (note we’ve changed to ‘magazine’ instead of ‘newsletter’ due to the size of this publication).
Ken will also have the help of his wife, Liz, who is an excellent photographer and who has provided us with many of the great photos that have been in Ken’s articles.
Terry Gibbs, an IOBA member with an extensive background in editing and publishing, also, will be acting as proofreader and assistant to Ken-thank you, Terry!
Now, a bit about Ken and his background:
“Ken Fermoyle has been a writer, editor and journalist for 54 years. His credits include more than 2,500 articles published in magazines ranging from Playboy and PC World to McCalls, MacWeek and Motor Life. He was auto editor of Popular Science, editor of Petersen’s Wheels Afield and QX Connection, wrote the syndicated Ken’s Korner column on computers from 1997 to 2002.
“A voracious reader since childhood, he wrote his first book reviews while sports editor of a large Michigan weekly paper in 1948. “I was also a reporter, feature writer and proofreader,” Ken reports, “but when I learned the book reviewer got to keep books reviewed, I took that on, too.” His book reviews have since appeared in newspapers, including The Detroit News and Los Angeles Times Book Review, various magazines, and book newsletters. He has edited and produced several non-fiction books; currently he and his colleague Tran Ngoc Chau are completing work on Hawks, Doves & The Dragon, a memoir of Chau’s involvement in Vietnam from the 1940s to 1975.”
I’ve enjoyed very much being editor of The Standard, and I hope you’ll all be as supportive of Ken as you have been of me-it has meant a lot, believe me. I thank you all.
See you once more in November!
