This issue has a lot of interesting stuff in it. So far it's in my opinion the best.

Thank you. It's been a month now, and I'm still grinning like a proud father!

We are now accepting contributions for Feast of Laughter Volume 4. We would like contributions of original essays, previously published essays (with explicit permission from the author/copyright holder), reviews, stories and artwork inspired by Lafferty, and something new this volume: "Lightning Essays," short essays of around 300 to 600 words about Lafferty's work, life, legacy, and influence.
