You can order a copy here (or even just browse some more of the contents) and follow its adventures here. Unusually, we’ve decided to put this issue’s editorial online. It’s important.
Regular readers will have noticed a l-o-o-o-ng gap between posts here. I have been unbelievably busy — although, unfortunately, not with stuff that will turn into prose. Life, eh? Can’t live with it, can’t live without it.
