The current issue of Slingshot (number 286, January/February 2013), the bi-monthly publication of the Society of Ancients, is now available for individual purchases from the Society web store. Individual copies are in very short supply, due to the reduced print runs we are now running - less than 50 copies are available at this point to those who haven't taken out subscriptions. Get them fast as we won't be printing any more!
