BROWN, Charles N(ikki)
(1937-) US publisher and editor, an sf fan who began his involvement in the field in the 1950s and who remains best known for founding the sf news magazine LOCUS in 1968, and bringing it to pre-eminence: dispensing news, reviews, bibliographical updates, interviews, obituaries, convention data and reports, and some gossip, Locus is the central information forum of the sf world, and has won 16 HUGO awards in its category. In 1995, with the journal well past its 400th issue, CNB remains both editor and publisher. In collaboration with William G. CONTENTO he began in the mid-1980s to compile yearly bibliographical volumes which covered the field with some thoroughness, through coverage year 1991, when the series terminated, though their dependence on the monthly Books Received columns in Locus - initially compiled from books received for review - somewhat constricted their coverage (Hyperlink to: BIBLIOGRAPHIES). But the editing of the sequence grew in sophistication from year to year - Hal W. HALL's ongoing Research Index from the 1988 volume onwards was a significant addition-and later volumes were very nearly comprehensive. In chronological order, the sequence comprises Science Fiction, Fantasy, \& Horror: 1984 (1990), Science Fiction in Print: 1985 (1986), Science Fiction, Fantasy, \& Horror: 1986 (1987), Science Fiction, Fantasy, \& Horror: 1987 (1988), Science Fiction, Fantasy, \& Horror: 1988 (1989), Science Fiction, Fantasy, \& Horror: 1989 (1990), Science Fiction, Fantasy, \& Horror: 1990 (1991) and Science Fiction, Fantasy, \& Horror: 1991 (1992).
