as the spirit wanes the form appears

Good evening, folks. Just an update from this side of the great pond: Typesetting and Layout–Works are well under way. Everybody having submitted is represented in issue number 2: There’s been no «rejection slip» so far – including Boris of Number 10 Downing Street (at this point thanks to Lucy Brazier for arousing the very scoopful of Boris’ attention)!

Take care and stay safe and sane out there!
