Don't miss those holiday specials!

Welcome to the last issue of CM before the holiday season and the last issue of 1996.

As a special last minute gift-buying feature, we have reviewed two late-arriving seasonal titles in this issue and highlighted them in festive red and green - Red Parka Mary, a picture book for young children, and Valley Christmas, a collection of Christmas-themed short stories for adults.

We have also revised our schedule for the holiday season. Rather than publishing on December 28, our next scheduled date, we will be deferring to festivities and big dinners and gift returns - in other words, we'll push the schedule back one week and return with Volume 3, Issue 9 on January 3, 1997.

Coming up later in January will be the exciting year-end roundup of the best titles of 1996 as well as reviews of books, CD-ROMs and videos plus news bulletins and more! See you in 1997.
