06: Season FinaleUp one level
May 1993: We now want to expand the ranks of this publication and form a collective.

Annalee Newitz, Joe Sartelle
As we announced in the last issue, we now want to expand the ranks of this publication and form a collective that will share responsibility for all aspects of its production and distribution.

- Talking Out Rancor and Redemption
Ann Marie Caffrey
What's needed is a plan of action, but recognizing the necessities on America's "fix-list" is a beginning.
