296.3 Summer Issue 2011

Welcome to our annual fiction issue and a host of stories about love and loss. Karen Lin-Greenberg serves up a poignant tale, “What Was There Long Ago,” about a burned-out college professor who learns to reconnect with his lost humanity. Brian Fitch’s “Better Than Dead” explores the uncertain future of a wounded Korean-war veteran who comes to terms with his separation from a homefront past and his tank crew. Kathy Flann’s comically absurd “Something for Everybody” is full of surreal fun and dating do’s and don’t’s. Enjoy!

We are proud, as always to honor Hispanic American Heritage Month (15 September to 15 October in the US) by publishing two Hispanic American poets—Deborah Casillas and Stephanie Jutras—and reviewing fiction by pioneer Chicano writer Mario Suárez and Cuban American mystery novelist Carolina Garcia-Aguilera.

Take this to the beach and read while you sun. Cowabunga!
