The newsletter is
on the way! This will be more of a book, but I had so much from ISAN and so many articles and updates that we just had to

electronically every other month. Please keep sending updates and articles, but please put "newsletter" in the subject
line so that I can keep track of them.

gamma ray bursts are far from science fiction. (Full summary below)
