The Monad.Reader is an electronic magazine about all things Haskell. It is less formal than journal, but somehow more enduring than a wiki-page. There have been a wide variety of articles, including: exciting code fragments, intriguing puzzles, book reviews, tutorials, and even half-baked research ideas.

Latest Issue

The Monad.Reader Issue 12 is now out.

Issue 12 is a Summer of Code special and consists of the following three articles:

Compiler Development Made Easy
Max Bolingbroke
How to Build a Physics Engine
Roman Cheplyaka
Hoogle Overview
Neil Mitchell

Discussion of this Issue's articles may be found on a separate page.

Feel free to browse the source files [1]. You can check out the entire repository using darcs:

The source code and LaTeX files have all been released under a BSD-style license.

I'd welcome any general discussion and feedback on the Talk page.

Previous editions

All the previous editions have moved to a separate page. Some of the older, wiki-published articles need some TLC. If you read any of the articles and can spare a few minutes to help clean up some of the formatting, your help would really be appreciated.

The name

The name is a pun, I'm afraid. A magazine is sometimes also referred to as a "reader". The articles are not necessarily about monads.
