Good news!

Our new issue, "Sickness and Pelf," is all set to go up online on Monday, November 10. Print versions should be coming to you in the mail soon, too, if they have not arrived already. Pelf, by the way, means "dirty money." More about that next week, too.

As a bit of a preview, we've put up the bitter pill of Astra Taylor and Joanne McNeil's "The Dads of Tech." It's strong medicine, and we hope you like it as much as we do.

You can also get a flavor of the centerpiece of the issue, George Scialabba's "The Endlessly Examined Life," by reading Robert Birnbaum's interview with him this week. Chronic depression, Scialabba said, is "the most widespread illness in the world, and there's a lot of secrecy, of furtiveness, about it, it seemed to us that it might be worthwhile to offer this glimpse from another angle into the culture of health and sickness, which the whole issue is meant to represent." The two of them talked at length about mental health, reading, writing, and ambition. It's great.

OK then, we'll see you back here on Monday. Until then, check out what you may have missed this week on the Baffler online.
