The Monad.Reader is an electronic magazine about all things Haskell. It is less formal than journal, but more enduring than a wiki-page or blog post. There have been a wide variety of articles, including: exciting code fragments, intriguing puzzles, book reviews, tutorials, and even half-baked research ideas.
Please note that the Monad.Reader has moved to http://themonadreader.wordpress.com. This site will no longer be updated.

I'd welcome any general discussion and feedback on the Talk page.
All the previous editions have moved to a separate page: The_Monad.Reader/Previous_issues. 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.

5 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.
