 It is with the greatest sadness that we advise that Richard King, Managing Editor of Canterbury University Press, died suddenly, this week at home.

Many of you will know first-hand what a knowledgeable and skilful editor Richard was. He was also a delightful friend and colleague – caring, generous and kind. We will miss him hugely. CUP and its authors are immensely proud of the beautiful books he produced, and the dedication with which he managed the Press.

Our thoughts are with his partner Gillian, his sons Milanyin and Benedict, his daughters Anna and Tessa, his brother Tim, and their families. We will post the details for Richard’s funeral on the CUP website when they are to hand.

Jeff Field, Kaye Godfrey & Rachel Scott,

Canterbury University Press.
