Due to the near-overlap of the November publication dates of both Brief Encounters and the Fall 2015 issue of Soundings, some of the individual contributions to Brief Encounters were already announced in the last issue. However, in order to present a complete picture of the RWW community’s contribution to this book, we are repeating those listings in this issue along with the ones we are including for the first time. We congratulate editors Dinah Lenney and the late Judith Kitchen, as well as all of the RWW contributors, on the publication of this beautiful book.
