Editorial This was supposed to become the 2013 spring edition instead it has become the end-of-year issue. Difficult to say what caused the delay. Besides some personal problems which let me postponing deadlines again and again, I sometimes think the good old assembling magazine, which has served us in so many ways since the 1950's when Fluxus and other avant-garde art movements where around, is slowly dying. These days it is seems much easier to publish on the internet (and even this magazine is since 2012 online on http://mailworks.blogspot.be/ ) and an assembling is a lot of work, for all, especially those contributing the pages. Therefore I am especially grateful to all who undertook also this time the hassle to give wonderful works of art for this ninth edition of the Bizarre Cities, which runs under the theme of Urban Lights. There were also quite a few who were promising contributions only to withdraw at a later stage and delaying thereby this edition further. But enough complaining. This edition is about an aspect of the city I like especially: its lights. And when do they come out? Right! At night. Isn't the city at night pretty different from what you experienced during daylight? Different places, different people, different contrasts. With this edition I wanted to catch a bit of this specific time and situation. I hope you find of this enjoyment in this magazine. Enjoy! The editor (Friday, 13 December 2013)
