The 1988 Speleo Digest is finally here!

Thrill to the ghastly rigors of the "Grim Gateway" and the "Cyanide Canyon." Will you ever make it out alive?
Shudder at the horror of the Spring Cave sump diving expedition. Gasp for breath as you wonder if lost cave divers will ever make it out alive. Maybe you'll even find an answer to the question "Do fish cry?"
Tremble at the horror that lurks in the bowels of Hicks Cave.
Tired of the same old boring caves? Then take to the sewers and subways for a change of pace.
Learn the fine art of Armchair Caving and the ever-important skill of proper "seating."
Share in the poetical lamentation of the death of an inexperienced caver from Giles County, VA.
