Dear Jason,

You are the reader that every editor dreams of having and keeping! And I
hope that there are a number of scientists who share your views, and are
members of the Society(!). I do hear rumblings, though, including
suggestions that a number of members are lost after a year or two when they
find that there is not enough interest in the hard copy things which they
receive from IAS.

I hope that my letter and your reply will start some more discussion by
members of the board, particularly those who know the dynamics of the
membership, and the allocation of funds to our various activities.

For my part, I don't particularly want the extra number of deadlines that
more issues per year would bring, but on the other hand I grieve each time
the lovely colour images that come in to me have to be reproduced in black
and white.

Thank you for your response _ I hope that a few more members of the board
will come out of hibernation long enough to consider Aroideana.

Regards, Derek
