The response to our travel issue has left us with a small, but welcome, problem: what to do with so much good material? ... Three issues of SPORT will be published in 1991.

All of the writing in this issue comes under the rubric 'travel'.

The next issue, a 'general' issue, will be published in July. Contributors will include: Damien Wilkins, Gregory O'Brien, Dinah Hawken, Fay Zwicky, Sara L. Knox, Elizabeth Smither, Murray Bail, Chris Else, Harry Kenidjack, Paola Bilbrough. There is still plenty of room; the deadline is 1 May.

SPORT 8, the issue for October 1991, will have as its theme 'food'; which we hope will be interpreted as freely or specifically as the writers in this issue have interpreted 'travel'. Deadline: 1 August.
