THESE ARE OUR CONTRIBUTORS TO ISSUE [17.5]. ENJOY THE AWESOME. IF YOU DO NOT ENJOY THE AWESOME SUFFICIENTLY, PLEASE CONTACT MANAGEMENT VIA THE [MASTHEAD].

* We believe in the serial comma.

* Here's our feeling on the bios. We prefer them to be entertaining, but above all they should be useful. Hence we include email addresses and website where you can find the writers, if the writers agree to this. We don't like to list awards or graduate degrees unless they are useful for readers. (We suspect these are not useful for readers.) However, we are happy to list other places you might find these writers' work, and where they teach or work, if you want to find them and send them cash or love or creepy or dirty or just plain sweet photos.
