I'm absolutely delighted to see that more and more of our issues are made up of poets who are new to Goblin Fruit; nine out of sixteen contributors this time around shared their favourite fruit with us. There's also significantly more audio than usual: thirteen brave souls have poured their voices into the aethertubes to read us their words.
Actually, increase has been this issue's general trend; thanks to the Spring's donation drive, we're feeling our way towards larger Tables of Contents again. This makes me deeply happy. It feels like an exhalation after a long spell of held breath.
Special thanks, as ever, to justbeast and Oliver Hunter for layout and art, but also to dormouse_in_tea, whose keen proofreading attentions were indispensable.
So, go forth, feast, frolic about in our Fall. Savour the thorns and bones of it. Share them with your friends. And when you're done dallying with the witch girls and wolf peaches, if you've any breath left at all, come back and tell us how it tasted.
