We’re indulging our obsession and going “Prehistories” for our very final issue (for now). Issue 25 features neolithic humans surging towards modernity, and stories about us moderns reflecting on the past—that of our own world, of sinister faerie realms, and of far-flung goldilocks planets. And yes, you’ll find the promised megafauna and archeologists herein.
