Hats Off! to Maren O. Mitchell whose poem “I, The Pillar of the Alphabet” appears online in the Tenth Anniversary Issue of Town Creek Poetry. Also, her poems “Rod Spears, How He Got Started,” “Air on G,” and “E without a Base, F” appear in the Summer 2017 issue of Chiron Review.


Hats Off! to John Stickney whose short story “The Oldest Old Country” appears in Passport to Murder: Bouchercon Anthology 2017 (Down and Out Press). Passport to Murder is published in conjunction with Bouchercon, the World Mystery Convention, which ran the week of October 10, 2017, in Toronto, Ontario. As with the convention itself, the anthology spreads a broad canopy across a wide variety of crime writers from across the country and around the world—including both veteran writers and the brightest up-and-coming talents in the field. In addition, John’s review of "A Brutal Bunch of Heartbroken Saps" by Nick Kolakowski appears in TOUGH.
