Wade Busby
Wade was once a member of the “Seattle four” that ran the small press newszine Comics F/X. Wade had been involved with our magazine in many incarnations and versions, mainly as a reviewer. We are sad to report of his death in early 2015 at the age of 49. He was a good friend, karaoke singer, and chat monkey. He will always be missed here.

Ellen Fleischer
Ellen stepped forward to copy-edit when we were in-progress getting things in place to start SP! back up again in 2012. She has proven to be a real MVP of the SP! Team, not only helping by doing interviews, but by being our frontpage news editor (taking the news releases, making solid stories out of them, and then posting them). In July, she became our managing editor. Professional editing credits include Watchguard and Teen Force 5 (forthcoming from Xion Studios). Ellen is currently working on her first novel.
