My last task of the year is to send a special greeting and a big thank you to all the people who supported my work over the year and/or proved to be reliable companions in our common projects:
Thanks to my Nova co-editor Olaf G. Hilscher, to our editorial assistant Sven Kloepping and translator Tommi Brem, to all our authors and artists – too numerous to name them all here – and to our new publisher Jürgen Eglseer who made the survival of our magazine in its twelfth year possible. Thanks to my Second Life companions, especially Thorsten Kueper aka Kuperpunk Korhonen, Johanna Düffel, Moewe Winkler and Asmita Duranjaya. Thanks to my publishers Uschi Zietsch of Fabylon and Harald Giersche of Begedia for their enthusiasm and patience. Thanks to all my fellow writers, especially Horst Pukallus and Oliver Kemmler. Thanks to my friends Katharina and Bunga, Tomas Juriga, Albert Hoch, Sigrun Schmidt, Gisela Diederichs, Ela & Andreas Brenger. Thanks, last not least, to my cousin Martina for her day-to-day help and support.
A last greeting is reserved for my daughter Juliana: wherever you are and whatever you do, I hope you’re happy and that we’ll meet again one day.
