This 54-page bumper issue is labelled “Fall 2020” which reflects the length of time it has taken to produce. We are looking at ways of speeding up the production process so that we can catch up; if you think you might be able to help please do get in touch. Meanwhile work has already started on our next issue, but additional contributions are always welcome. Please submit your ideas or finished articles to our commissioning editor John Vanderplank in the first instance.
