"COVER: This month's cover is by Charles Rodrigues. Rodrigues is the author of Great Expectations and The Mayor of Casterbridge, and has received the Nobel Prize in Physics for his pioneering work in the use of lens prismatics in the collimation of nondiscrete ions. He currently makes his home in Jakarta, where he takes time off whenever he can from his busy schedule as President of Indonesia to go riding on one of his prize unicorns or work on a few new entries to his dictionary of the dolphin language."
