Update for July–August 2008
Script & Print 32:1 (2008) will be another mixed issue (details below), with lots of reviews which have been squeezed out of recent issues. It will probably be followed by a special, manuscript issue, which is being co-edited by myself, Margaret Manion and James Lowry. If the planets align there might be one last mixed issue in 2008, leaving only five issues for 2009 (three of which will be the Harold Love Memorial Issue).
