Dear friends and colleagues,
Too many valuable tasks often are, or go, thankless. So may I  take
this opportunity, on behalf of the popular masses, to thank 
Stephen warmly for his decade of sterling service to our  community.
Not forgetting all who write the reviews, and indeed those  whose
labour and diligence keeps the whole  KS enterprise on the road.
KSR is invaluable. Stephen has surely  earned a break. I'm sure 
we all wish Robert well in taking over the  reins.
So many books in English on Korea these days! Even as  one 
struggles to keep up, us old-timers may recall when they  were
but a handful, and each new one an  event. Rejoice!
Best wishes

Dear all,

As long-time list members will have noticed, Korean Studies Review has  
been primarily conspicuous by its absence over the last year. A host of other  
commitments have kept me away from editorial duties, and the situation is  
likely to continue for the foreseeable future. I have decided, therefore, 
that  rather than leave KSR in this semi-moribund state, it's time, after a 
decade,  to hand on the editorial reins. I'm pleased to announce that KSR will 
be in  capable hands, as Robert Fouser of Seoul National University  
(fouser at snu.ac.kr) will take over as editor. He'll be working with reviewers  from 
now on, sending out reviews and overseeing the KSR website. Eventually  KSR 
will migrate to a new server, but for the time being reviews from  1998-2007 
will continue to be available at http://koreaweb.ws/ks/ksr/ ;  reviews from 
2008 on will be available at the new KSR website  

Below is the list of books that are currently available. Those who are  
interested in a book should write to me directly at  
<stephen.epstein at vuw.ac.nz>.  I will continue to arrange receipt  for now and Bob will handle sending 
out books from the next notice of books  available. For more info about KSR 
and to access past reviews, see  http://koreaweb.ws/ks/ksr.

Finally, let me say that working on KSR over the years has been a great  
pleasure, largely for the opportunity to get to know so many of you  
electronically, and then often, in person.

Best wishes to everyone, and thank you for your support over the  years.
