In 1993, Wendy Harrex became Managing Editor of the University Press. She had vast experience in the trade, having worked at Oxford University Press, and in the 1980s started the New Women's Press in Auckland. Hers was a milestone appointment as the first full-time position as editor. One of her early tasks was to gain critical mass for the Press. Reprinting titles is one way of doing this. Wednesday's Children (1937) and Nor the Years Condemn (1938), two titles by the New Zealand writer Robin Hyde, were selected by Harrex as UOP reprints. Another Hyde-related book published recently is Lighted Windows, a collection of essays by New Zealand and overseas literary scholars, and edited by Mary Edmond-Paul.
