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 8 is now available. Issue 8 consists of the following two articles:

Generating Multiset Partitions
Brent Yorgey
Type-Level Instant Insanity
Conrad Parker

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.

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.
