SDR is recently back from AWP, where it was so nice to meet so many of our contributors and subscribers! Yesterday, staff members sent out the newly-pressed and autumnally mooncake-ish fall issue. We can’t wait for you to see it! Yes, it’s true, that autumn was a while back, and I confess that we’re running a bit behind schedule, but hope to get caught up again over the next couple of issues or so. Historically, though, SDR’s seasons have always been somewhat quirkily after-the-fact. Seasons after the season. We’ve come to find this sort of endearing. We hope you do, too.
