The College of Arts and Sciences at Northeastern University has supported Studies in American Fiction consistently for more than three decades. My colleagues on SAF's internal editorial board and I are deeply grateful that the College's longstanding financial commitment, together with that of our subscribers, has made it possible for Northeastern's Department of English to help sustain the community of scholarly publication in American literature.
Competing professional commitments, however, have made it impossible for me to continue as Editor beyond this fall. Happily, I am able to tell readers that SAN has found a new home: Fordham University and the Graduate Center of the City University of New York will jointly edit and publish Studies in American Fiction. There will be a short hiatus in publication as SAF makes the transition to its new institutional homes; further information and updates will be available from time to time through the web site of Northeastern's Department of English.
Meanwhile, I would like to take this opportunity to thank all my colleagues on SAF's editorial boards who have shared with me the pleasant responsibility of reading and evaluating the many essays that have come through our hands, and the graduate assistants who over the years have dedicated so many hours to producing the journal. Editing SAF has introduced me to a wonderfully collegial, worldwide community of American literature specialists, and I will continue to look forward to meeting in person many of the rising scholars we have published in recent years.
Some of SAF's back issues are currently being gathered together for free electronic access under the auspices of Northeastern University's Institutional Repository--IRis--and the Northeastern University Libraries (<http://www.lib.neu.edu/libraries_and_collections/iris/>). I hope that SAF's readers will continue to visit these resources as they expand, and I thank Northeastern University for helping to preserve SAF's legacy in this new medium.
