August 23, 2009: Assistant GURPS Line Editor
After 14 years of running GURPS by myself, stealing hours from staff editors when I desperately needed help, I have a full-time accomplice: Rev. Pee Kitty, otherwise known as Jason "PK" Levine or simply PK. His official title is "Assistant GURPS Line Editor," and he started on Monday, August 10, 2009. He will gradually take over the day-to-day draft-reviewing and stats-checking of GURPS supplements, leaving me more time to plan products, edit, and write. When I'm planning or editing – and thus away from writing – PK will be doing some staff writing, too. In short, we'll be sharing the load. I'm still the boss of GURPS, reviewer of proposals, and court of last resort in all matters GURPS-ish, but PK is my official stand-in . . . so please give his rulings the same weight as my own!
For the curious, PK was chosen on the strength of many years of playtesting experience and stats-checking, most notably his heroic efforts on the three crunchiest books in the Fourth Edition gamut: GURPS Martial Arts, GURPS Powers, and GURPS Thaumatology. He also demonstrated serious stats-crunching and writing chops in the GURPS Creatures of the Night series and GURPS Dungeon Fantasy 5: Allies. His masterpiece, though, was writing GURPS Psionic Powers with so few rules hitches that I was relegated to commenting on style and usage. My feeling is that anybody capable of crunching that kind of crunch is up to the challenge!
So let's give a warm welcome to PK!
