This is the first issue of Yog's Notebook that I have seen. In the Welcome, editor Audrey Eschright promises "funny, scary and strange" and delivers pretty well.
In "Back to the Classifieds", Jessica E. Kaiser gives us the story of a job-seeker who gives the wrong answer to "Why did you leave your previous job?". Simon Petrie's "Three-Horned Dilemma" begins with a man looking out his window and seeing a triceratops ripping up his backyard. Things go downhill from there. "KuiperGate" by Kaylea Hascall Champion tells of a first contact situation that does not go as planned.
"The Necronomicon Cookbook" is a short funny poem by Glynn Barrass. "Foo Boxen" by Stephen Couch is a funny take on the Schroedinger's Cat idea. Mathew Russell's "Electric Judas" is a more serious take on an artificial being and why his creator made him.
The issue is rounded out by a column & book reviews and even has a coloring contest. It's worth giving a look.
