Issue #2 of Arcturus magazine is now complete, and a few themes emerged over the course of October. One was the shifting of seasons as the earth tilts back on its heels and the nights grow long and sharp. Another was the incursion of nature into the realms of man, and vice versa, and why that dichomoty is an illusion.
