We propose a new picture of the Ising-spin-glass phase, based on an Ansatz for the scaling of low-lying large-scale-droplet excitations. We find behavior very different from the infinite-range model. The truncated spatial correlations decay as a power of distance, the ac nonlinear susceptibility diverges as a power of ln, and the magnetization noise power diverges as 1 with logarithmic corrections. A magnetic field destroys the spin-glass phase so that there is no de Almeida-Thouless transition. Defect excitations should yield similar dynamic phenomena in vector spin-glasses.
