This issue of Nebula, like its predecessors, invites an engagement with diversity. Reading it, I rediscovered the pleasure of encountering unexpected resonances between these apparently disparate pieces, an experience that is all the more engrossing in an issue that encompasses a series of interrogations of various kinds of continuity. Monica F. Jacobe, Lee Barron, Walter L. Williams, and Brabazon, Dear, Greene and Purdy all ask questions about the continuity of identity. Gaining Imperial Paradise asks questions about the interplay between the literatures of the colonised and the colonisers. Reflective Solutions examines the role of language in dissent, asking questions about the continuity of speech and action and offering an interesting contrast to Philip Santa-Marias essay Virtuous Victims of an Enlightenment Paradox, which questions the continuity between speech and action in the ethics of Benjamin Franklin. There are many more intriguing confluences here, most of which, Im sure, have yet to be unearthed. This is fertile ground. Happy reading.
