New Fourth Door Review – Here We Are * Weeks Away



Notes on a magazine, interrupted.
(a short piece on our latest wilderness years will be uploaded soon)

As those who've been long and medium term observers of Fourth Door Reviews publication schedule practices will know, getting any of the editions out into the world has never been straight forward. So, without breaking with tradition, we are now at the point, a mere 1800 days after the last edition, where Fourth Door Review 9 is to be finally published in the next few weeks! As with previous efforts the new edition continues themes which are the weave and warp of the Fourth Door Review entity while also allowing for various new and related themes.
