News from the Editor:

I would like to congratulate a few of the writers whose work
appeared in our
Spring 2007 issue.  Kerri Quinn’s short story,
How to Leave,” was selected by fiction judge Merrill Feitell
for
Best of the Net 2007.  Quinn’s story was one of only six
selected for this annual compilation.   

Pageant Queen,” an essay by J. W. Young, and “Island Fever,”
a poem by
Edward Byrne, were selected by series editor Nathan
Leslie and guest editor Steve Almond for
Best of the Web 2008.  
This print anthology, forthcoming from
Dzanc Books, has an
anticipated release date of July 2008.
