    Do I see a common typo in the contents page? "IN Never Snows in Snowtown". Or does that mean what it says, that the quality of in does not snow?

  4. John, it's spelled correctly in the print copy. "It Never Snows in Snowtown."

    They must have been fooling around or something down at the distribution.

    One of our checking copies arrived today (11/8) in Hoboken, NJ.

    We also heard from a subscriber in Florida who received his copy today.

    Got it today. Wonderful cover, but the mailing sticker throws off all the perspective; I'll have to settle for looking at it here. I don't know if I trust the post office any more. The back cover has a deliberate tear down the side. I don't get to see what kind of ship the Marching Morons are in, but I will say that what they're doing doesn't include me. Hence a false claim is made, if I am understanding it with that part of the caption missing. On the other side, similarly an ad, --Name of a small dog! THE NAME OF ALL THINGS reminds me of Scalzi's THE END OF ALL THINGS, and in turn of Sax Rohmer's THE DAY THE WORLD ENDED, but with most of the text missing, I get no explanation of the title, a mystery unsolved. Looks like the book satisfied one reviewer more than he's ever been satisfied, though.

    What are encomiums? I'm not in on it. The opening story, though, should have awards for the most intimate story in recent years.
