This poses an interesting question.  Since the IBS is now defunct, there is no venue for publishing in depth scientific bulb articles as they did in Herbertia.  Any chance PBS would have any interesting in becoming the new venue for such articles by expanding to such a publication?

Subject: [pbs] PBS is seeking a new Bulb Garden editor

Dear PBS members,

Jane Merryman, who has contributed excellently as editor of PBS's valuable print newsletter, "The Bulb Garden," is finishing her tenure at that job.
Thank you Jane for many years of dedication to producing an increasingly better newsletter!!

To continue our newsletter, the Board is searching for a new editor. The editor's duties include corresponding with potential contributors (often discovered in discussions on this list) and receiving their work, checking the length and style, and sending the text to Jen Hildebrand, who composes the layout with the photos. The newsletter is scheduled to come out four times a year, so the ability to work to a deadline is particularly important.

Since all this correspondence is carried out electronically, the editor does not have to live in the US. In addition, one of the PBS Board members who is a professional editor is willing to copyedit the text, so a perfect command of English is not necessary either.

If you have a few hours a month to spare for corresponding with fellow enthusiasts and with Jen Hildebrand, along with a lively curiosity about growing bulbs, please write to Jane McGary at this address: Jane McGary < janemcgary@earthlink.net> to avoid unnecessary traffic on the list.

Thank you and we hope to hear from many of you!

Nhu Nguyen
PBS President
