[fwiw:  this is my all-time favorite magazine;  "/Not everyone is 
prepared for the stark reality in The Sun with its often poignant 
writing and haunting black and white photographs.  The whole magazine is 
like an intelligent compassionate friend who perceptively articulates 
your innermost thoughts and dreams/." Utne Reader awarded Safransky's 
publication its Alternative Press Award, calling it "/a magazine 
completely unlike any other, always personal, always meaningful, always 
unexpected/."

"/Unfortunately, you're not likely to find The Sun at your regular 
newsstand. Many distributors won't carry it because it's not 
'commercial' enough: we don't carry advertising; and we regularly print 
pieces that are too risky, too personal, too sad, too something. Yet 
somehow the magazine finds its way into the right hands; readers who 
appreciate writing that doesn't talk down to them or up to them, but 
meets their level gaze/."  editor, Sy Safranksy
