Full disclosure: we love our mixed drinks in these parts. So much so that, when friends of the magazine suggested we do a “Cocktails”-themed issue, we couldn’t say no. But we always strive to represent the broadest possible definition for our themes, so this issue contains more than otherworldly admixtures of alcohol and syrups on distant planets or gen-ships. Alchemy comes in many forms and has almost limitless functions (some of them quite unpleasant). Look for this issue on June 18.
