It’s a whole new world out there – and in here, and like Bianca Pellet,
that must give you
Hope, especially when the … pearl-coloured morning
(Dawn Gorman) is slowly giving way to brighter skies, if not quite as early as
Mike Bedford,
at 2 am. And we cover some BIG themes, like Jami Macarty
and Leviathan… Moving swiftly on, since David Heidenstam is discussing
Improbabilitiesyou may want to know  more about Clown’s crossing by
Caroline Price, how cute is Foxy (Christina Buckton), and why 
Ralph Mold
is writing about the life in
BrianNot only that, if you are intrigued,
like Alessio Zanelli,  about The Missing Words,
well, maybe James B. Nicola knows how to find the answer:
One Reason Why I Use a Big Old Dictionary.
Or look up something just as fascinating in this issue:
