We want to start off this issue by saying to all of our readers that we love you. Our readers of color, our queer and trans readers, our differently abled readers, our readers of all faiths and backgrounds—we see you, you are valued, your experiences are valid. Stay safe, keep being kind to each other.
In this issue we're exploring The Deep—dark ocean trenches, secret crannies of the human heart, far reaches of outer space. Take a deep breath. We'll take this plunge and face whatever happens together.
