We Lost Another Good One

I was sad last week to hear of the death of John Mella, the founding editor of Light Quarterly.  The fate of this journal of light, humorous and fanciful verse, the only one of its kind in the U.S., is in doubt, but current comments on their web site indicate that the members of the foundation responsible for its publication will produce only one additional issue.  In one blow we’ve lost a great market for light verse as well as a staunch supporter of the genre who was faithful in diseminating the best work of the best poets in this style, as well as reviews and commentary.  I did not know Mr. Mella personally, but I will miss him and his work.
