Issue 3 (Mar/Apr 2010)

Issue 3 opens with "Through the Wall", a reflective piece from Hugh Fox.  Matt Dennison's "Best Prayers" takes us on a trip out west to witness a man wrestling with religion's condemnation of the finer things in life.  Indira Chandrasekhar gives us a truly enchanting vision of young love with "The Shift". J.A. Tyler closes things out as his "Landscape [n3]" washes over us.

Issue 2 (Jan/Feb 2010)

Issue 2 brings us another international line-up of talent.  We kick things off with a peek under Leah Ebdon's keyboard.  Vanessa Gebbie introduces us to Ed's Wife and Other Creatures with three surreal bits of microfiction.  T.R. Healy gives us new insights into the inner lives of opera extras and Niall Boyce provides a tale of time travel run amok.

Featuring an international array of authors, Issue 1 brings us an O Henry style tale from Ilan Herman, an evocative prose poem from Irish writer Nuala Ni Chonchuir, frenetic ruminations on the writing life from Mathew Klickstein and a look behind the scenes of the cosmos courtesy of Jason Stout.
