Our January issue is up up and away! Oh this is a fine issue. It really is. Let’s start with the four short stories by Ashley Farmer where the writing evokes the surreal and fables. You also don’t want to miss the short story by Matthew Battles that is both future tale and cautionary tale with some Wikipedia thrown in for good measure. We included ten poems, written to a YOU, by Rose Hunter in this issue because she submitted ten and we couldn’t bear saying no to any of them because they are that good. You will also find work you won’t want to turn away from by Spencer Wise, Marcus Speh, Domi Shoemaker, Evelyn Somers, Gwen Mullins, Teresa Milbrodt, Gary McDowell, Sherri Hoffman, Sheila MacAvoy, Mika Seifert, Benjamin Rybeck, Jeffrey Kingman, Rose Hunter, Christian Harder, Matthew Gilbert, Nancy Flynn, Mike Dockins, and Kristiana Rae Colon whose two poems are, in a word, exquisite.
