I've had a lot of folks step up and offer me articles/reviews over the last few days, hooking on to my talk of stretching out the issue in order to accommodate some new ad pages. Big thanks to all. Instead of doing that, I've decided to kill a few pieces and keep the ish to its 80-page state. Either those articles will find life on the web soon or they'll carry over to the next issue.
In the meantime, I'd advise those folks and my irregular contributors to start thinking about articles/reviews for the next ish.
So close to sending this bad boy in to the printers. Despite "depressing the market" with the few hundred copies, I still plan on unleashing this on the world as soon as it's ready.
