A listing of all the authors and stories in our back issues can be found under the manifesto tab. Warning: the back issues are tough to find. You have to earn your copy. The purchase page gives some hints.

Oh, another thing: “You can see the Farallones” is San Francisco slang for: “Today, the air is clear, bright, and striking,
and we can see for a very long way.”
