The Monad.Reader, Haskell eZine

There are plenty of academic papers about Haskell, and plenty of informative pages on the Haskell Wiki. But there's not much between the two extremes. The Monad.Reader aims to fit in there; more formal than a Wiki page, but less formal than a journal article.

Want to write about a tool or application that deserves more attention? Have a cunning hack that makes coding more fun? Got that visionary idea people should know about? Write an article for The Monad.Reader!
