CM May 10, 1996. Vol II, Number 30

Table of Contents

From the Editor

We're putting this issue of CM together on a short schedule, because Peter and I are involved as presenters at the 1996 M.L.A. Conference. The upshot is that we're too busy talking about the Internet to spend much time on it; thus, there's no "Notable Web Sites" feature this week.

And just a note about an omission: in our review of Don't tell anyone, but -- UFO experience in Canada, CM failed to credit William Gabriel for the cover design and much of the interior illustration. Our apologies.

As always, please send any comments to the address beneath my name.
