As we draw this year to a close, we have to look back on where we came from. The beginning of this year saw my addition to the InkySuki family. Once, this press was a lone gunship under the watchful eye of our own Captain. She saw fit to add a mad scientist, and the laboratory has been churning out wonderful products ever since.
We have conquered so many hurdles this year. The day jobs (which have been abysmal), two interstate moves for the Laboratory, a period of itinerant editing, cover troubles and website woes have found us stronger than ever. We move forward into the new year with releases ready to go out, new editors and artists, new authors, and scheduled conventions.
The next year will see us guesting at Frolicon and many other excellent conventions. New short stories, anthologies, and novels will be released. With any luck of the winds, new authors can be brought to the stable and will join our ever-growing press.
The Lost Laboratory salutes you all. May the winds be fair as you reflect on 2013 and emerge ready for 2014. It's only been 2 years since the world ended, and nothing makes more sense in a post-apocalyptic world such as ours than to write, be creative, invent, and learn.
Happy New Year, in the name of Auld Lang Syne.
Gabriel Belthir and all the labrats of the Lost Laboratory
