Wow! What a month May turned out to be for Ovi magazine. First we published our 3,000th contribution, then we released the 'ME' theme issue and then we had to deal with Finnish copycats - if anybody ever needed a holiday in June then it is the members of the Ovi Team! However, holidays are off the agenda for now because we have the May 2008 Monthly Covers Issue to distribute.

Thanks once again to each of the contributors who spent valuable personal time writing and sending material to us, plus all the words of support concerning the copycats. We certainly covered a great number of issues this month ranging from US politics to Champions League finals, Chinese culture to the probability of life in outer space. It seems we continue to live up to our slogan: We cover every issue!

As for the cover stories, Valerie Sartor continued to teach us about China with articles about its economy, a man who rescues elephants and the country's smoking ban. Alexandra Pereira stayed with the Oriental theme with a piece of Japan's founding myth, and followed it with the myth of Angola's creation. Alexander Mikhaylov told us why we should read Terry Pratchett's Discworld series and then offered a confession of a househusband.

Leah Sellers warned us that something foreseeable is coming this way, before recognising the strength of Hillary Clinton's campaign. Dr. Habib Siddiqui gave us the first part of his series on 'Democracy, Presidential Election and the Lobby', Christopher Wilkinson discussed Barack Obama's religion, Binoy Kampmarklooked to the stars in search of extra-terrestrial life and Emanuel L. Paparella introduced many of us to Richard Rorty's philosophy.

We had an emotive piece from Gush Shalom for the 60th anniversary of the founding of Israel and Palestine, Clint Wayne prepared us for the political voting of the Eurovision, Akli Hadid revealed Delusion 18:18, trol explained why she doesn't want to holiday in Greece and Vesa Kuosmanen recounted his days at the 61st Cannes Film Festival. Jari Martikainen returned with two photographic exhibitions, and we were treated to a second collection of work from Cátia Cóias.

Between Thanos and Asa, they covered the Austrian kidnapping, Kosovo, Shakespeare in Love, International Conscientious Objectors Day, James Stewart's 100th birthday and the Champions League final, and that was only the ones to receive covers.

Thanks to all of you, and here's to more craziness in June!
