Off to the presses

There's nothing more exciting about putting together an issue of jmww. You proof the stories and code them for HTML, and only you, not even the editors (who only know what has been accepted in their respective sections) know the entirety of the issue. And there's amazing work and you're proud of it, and you're walking to the party with the biggest diamond in your purse, bright as worlds, and no one can see in in the dark folds of leather. Not yet. You smile conspiratorially: you just wait.

I'm hoping to have the winter issue of jmww up on Monday, December 19th. Not much waitin' left.
