".... I'm delighted to report that many months of planning and hard work have culminated in the decision to make 78 years of Psychic News in newspaper format available online and free of charge (see Pages 17-20). Early issues can already be viewed.
As a weekly newspaper, Psychic News was a "living archive" and it remains so in its current magazine format, covering all that is important within the Spiritualist and psychic scenes, as well as the wider paranormal field.
The University of Manitoba is in the process of building the digitised Pychic News archive, to sit alongside its other Spiritualist and parapsychology collections. Feel free to explore and enjoy it at your leisure.
This issue of Psychic News is my last as Editor, as already announced, and from the July issue the newly-merged Psychic News (incorporating Two Worlds) will be edited by Tony Ortzen.
Tony is no stranger to our columns, having edited Psychic News for long periods on previous occasions, and I know you will join me in welcoming him and wishing him well. It can be challenging at times but he brings decades of experience to the role and I am sure he will enjoy it as much as I have.
Special thanks go out to my Psychic News colleagues who have given me such wonderful support, and to all our readers whose feedback and encouragement have been hugely important."ROY STEMMAN
