Dear ALT members,

don't despair:  your copy of LT 6-3 (2002) hasn't been lost in the mail.
Last year's last issue will come soon, in mid February, delayed by
technical problems with the typesetting, caused by unusually recalcitrant
fonts long resisting to print out or even become visible.

LT 7-1 (2003) is already in production and will be out on time in March.

Below is a preview of the contents of both issues.

Those of you keen to be in future issues of LT, please remember to submit
your papers in electronic form even at the first try (accompanied by three
printouts):  you'll then be reviewed even faster.
