I have enjoyed reading around in the issue. I liked Maryann's poems very much, and I also enjoyed the review of Bruce Bennett's collection by Susan Spear. I look forward to reading the rest of the issue. I am sorry about the requirement that people pay to join the society if they want to submit to the journal. It is an excellent journal, but I have a constitutional abhorrence of "pay-to-play" submissions, so I will have to think hard about this one.
