It’s June, and we’re sweating right through the striped knees of our old-timey bathing suit. Join us as we scuttle into the shade of a giant umbrella and let these beach reads tickle the sand off our toes.
Our ninetieth issue has art crimes of the future, poems that do yet don’t add up, an aspiring Western hero, and a flaming car in reverse. Also a great cover photograph–with body paint, which is a first for us.

Quick remind-plea: We need YOU to crank up your steam-powered typing machine and create a beautiful monster for our Victorian Mash-Up Issue!
“May” suggests potential paths, offering not the certainty of resolution but the allure of possibilities.
In this spirit, our eighty-ninth issue grapples with some tough questions. What have you lost? What if the circus didn’t have to die? What was Mary Jane Kelly like before she met Jack the Ripper? What’s in the box? Why aren’t you a spoon? Does this month’s cover art include an ouroboros?

It’s spring, and our little garden plot in the Pine Barrens is starting to sprout. Paul Van Dyke supplies the time-traveling turtles, and Marie Marshall reveals the name of the rose. There’s a nice border of moon rocks courtesy of Mariah Montoya, and Michael A. Ferro generates a pleasing atmosphere of claustrophobic paranoia. Chris Beetow sets the mood for outdoor adventures in the cover art.
Grab a trowel, or one of those tiny three-pronged rakes, and join us. There’s plenty of iced tea and earthworms for everyone.
