We want to welcome Villasenor Albania, who goes by the nickname "Ali", to the Alien Times staff. She hails from Mexico originally, and is now our new layout person. Nitika has returned to India, and so we wish to print a belated thanks to her for her efforts as well.
Due to the changeover and several logistical problems that were encountered, we were not able to get the printed version of the November issue out in a timely fashion, and so this issue is a combined Nov./Dec. issue. The web site version, however, has two separate issues.
