SpecGram Vol CLIX, No θ Contents A Primer in SF Xenolinguistics—Justin B. Rye

Special Supplemental Letter from the Editor

One of the few benefits of the so-called “Infobahn”, as we hear the young folk are calling it these days, is the ability of our crack editorial staff to search out important works, so that we can republish them. Our goal in doing so is two-fold. First, we want to bring these works to a broader audience (including the seven or eight subscribers of SpecGram who still do not have access to said Infobahn). Second, we want to get an article, or even an issue, out the door with almost no work.

One fascinating article we’ve found, entitled “A Primer in SF Xenolinguistics”, provides a clever and thought-provoking overview of the topic its title refers to. It is also long enough to fill half an issue, which is long enough for our friends at Psammeticus Press (“Publishing anything that’s too long for Speculative Grammarian.”). The other half-an-issue our tetchy subscribers will undoubtedly feel we owe them will come out in the second half of the month.

Thus, Speculative Grammarian, in association with and under the auspices of Psammeticus Press, is proud to present this monograph as a special supplement to Volume CLIX for our subscribersas well as our other, less remunerative readers.
