Note from the Editor

The fourth part of Don Sayenga’s “The Great Morph”, on page 14, concludes this great series. We hope you enjoyed reading it from issue to issue. If you missed any part of the series, or even his previous 3-parter “Cement Shoes”, you can get the PDF versions of each past issue online by pointing your browser to our website at: www.wireropenews.com/archive.html. We are attempting to get as many past issues as possible up on this page. Download and enjoy!

As I’ve mentioned a few times before, the online store ... which will carry WRN&ST items like coffee mugs, glasses, t-shirts and much more ... is still in the construction phase. Nothing online yet, but we certainly hope to have it up and running by mid-summer!
