The 39th edition of Caerdroia is now available, somewhat delayed by travel and lecture schedules in late 2009 and various other projects. Its 56 pages contain the usual eclectic mix of new discoveries, studies of specific labyrinths, thoughts on matters labyrinthine, from our contributors worldwide and the return of our regular Notes & Queries section. This time around, pressure of space has forced us to hold over several book reviews, but these will appear in Caerdroia 40. An appreciation of the life and work of the late Jørgen Thordrup also appears in this edition.
