EDITOR'S NOTE- Notice this: Double issue next week

As we do each holiday period, the Hook produces a special, glossy-covered double issue at the end of the year, and you have it in your hands, the final Hook for 2009. We hope you've enjoyed reading the Hook as much as we've enjoyed putting it together for you. There's no issue next week, Thursday the 31st, so look for the first issue of 2010 to hit the stands on January 7.
