Special YAVIS Issue!

On the cover:  One century’s Oedipal wench is another’s YAVIS. Our cover shows an adaptation of a painting that hung on Sigmund Freud’s office wall. In this version, Freud calculates his chances of successfully analyzing a declining patient. For the story on YAVISes, see page 4.

The features marked with a star (*) are based entirely on material taken straight from standard research (and other Official and Therefore Always Correct) literature. Many of the other articles are genuine, too, but we don't know which ones.
