To help you close out 2019 just right, we’ve got a gift for you that’s just your size: our theme-free big bang issue! In this, you’ll find all kinds of smutty romance and sexy adventure, from the mundane to the fantastic, from the historical to the imaginary, from the long to the … really, really long.

As always, we couldn’t have done any of this without the incredible hard work from all our volunteers — authors, artists, beta-readers, coders, signal-boosters, donors, and everyone else! This continues to be a project run on love and hard work, and we’re grateful that we’ve been gifted these both again and again throughout the year.

Thank you for reading, sharing, and coming back issue after issue. We hope you enjoy what the year has left in store for you, and we’ll see you in 2020!

For summaries, authors’ notes, and more, see this issue’s entry on the Shousetsu Bang*Bang wiki.
