IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT: I have finally found an additional editor for rh_press, so updates should be much more regular from now on. My thanks to everyone who inquired about helping out.

NOTE: This issue is current through June 22, 1:05 AM CDT. However, I was unable to read entries posted before June 8, 2010 on our watch journal, so for the period between May 22, 2010 and June 7, 2010, only entries posted to robinhoodbbc and robinhoodfic have been listed in this issue. I will pick up any missed entries in the next issues. Again, my apologies.

In an effort to simplify compilation of rh_press, and to make it easier for readers to find entries of interest, fanfiction entered as part of a specific challenge or fest is now listed under a separate subheading. If any entries for a fest have been missed, please let me know in the comments, and I will be happy to add the entries accordingly.
