Revision as of 14:00, 11 September 2007
The Monad.Reader is a 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.
1 Latest Issue
The Monad.Reader Issue 8 is now available. Issue 8 consists of the following two articles:

4 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.
