by Karen Bergstralh
Karen Bergstralh was one of the early pioneers of what became the massive, multi-author Ring of Fire alternate history series. Her first published story, “One Man’s Junk,” appeared in the fourth issue of the Grantville Gazette electronic magazine that is devoted to the series—the fourth issue of what are now ninety-six issues.
Karen passed away years ago, sadly. But here, finally, all her stories and articles are collected in a single commemorative volume.
Rick Boatright loved telling tales and he loved hearing tales. Rick was that rare guy who brought out the best in people around him. He was contagiously enthusiastic about so many things— food, history, science, good writing, the history of science, weird tech, and always, always, always his family. Rick created family, created ideas, created enthusiasm and love. He always helped others— he sought ways to help others. He encouraged and never asked for anything in return. Rick’s contagious enthusiasm started so many writers, and encouraged many more. He taught so many so much, so skillfully that you didn’t realize you were learning.
Those of you who knew him, your lives are much the richer for having known him, even though he’s gone. Those of you who never got to meet him, your lives are much the poorer for that lack. — David Carrico
