To tell you the truth, I (Nate) often have no clue how to write these things. They don't teach classes on how to write editor's notes.
So you know what?
I'm gonna make this one short and sweet, and say what, essentially, nearly every editor's note tries to say, and say it in three sentences:
I think that in this issue, our last of the year, we have published some damn fine writers.
And their voices come to us from all over this wide fucking wonderful screaming beautiful world--from cities as disparate as Bombay, Cologne, London, Seattle, New York, Long Beach, and ones as familiar as Minneapolis is to Saint Paul.
We hope you enjoy COLLAPSAR7.
