Minutes of a Meeting of Directors
held at Davis House, 69/77 High St.,
Croydon on 19th September, 1963


Present: J.D. Copeman (Chairman)
F.C. Copeman
G.A. Smart
E.J. Carnell

In Attendance: R.M. Best - Acting secretary
Apologies for absence were received from Messrs. Flood and Harris.

1. Company Secretary. The Chairman reported that a letter of resignation from Mr. M.C. Crowlie had been received and would become effective from 30th September, 1963. It was resolved that Mrs R.M.Best be appointed from that date as Company Secretary.

2. Future Policy. Mr. E.J. Carnell reported that there would be price increases for the last five issues of New World Science Fiction during 1963 and the last three issues of Science Fantasy in 1963. This, it was estimated would bring in an additional revenue of approximately £600. It was felt, however, that as home sales had considerably reduced from 1962 in addition to the loss of much overseas business, the most practical answer would be to cease publication, it was resolved that Mr. E.J. Carnell be given authority to examine the possibility of a sale of the two journals and report back to the board as soon as possible.
