Hats Off! to the Asheville-based literary press Orison Books: a poem from their forthcoming collection, Two Worlds Exist by Yehoshua November, will be featured in The New York Times Magazine. Orison Books is a non-profit literary press focused on the life of the spirit from a broad and inclusive range of perspectives.

Hats Off! to Art Taylor whose piece "Rearview Mirror" from his novel in stories, On the Road with Del and Louise, appears in The Best American Mystery Stories 2016. Edited by Elizabeth George, The Best American Mystery Stories 2016 is a feast of both literary crime and hard-boiled detection, featuring a seemingly innocent murderer, a drug dealer in love, a drunken prank gone terribly wrong, and plenty of other surprising twists and turns. The collection includes work from Steve Almond, Lydia Fitzpatrick, and Elmore Leonard, among many others.


Hats Off! to Sam Barbee who has two poems, “Vacancy” and “Vital Signs,” in the anthology Emergence (Kind of a Hurricane Press). Also, his poem “Inscriptions” appears in Snapdragon, edited by Jacinta V. White. Sam's poem “Recurring Dream,” from That Rain We Needed (Press 53), is forthcoming in O.Henry Magazine, and his poem “Triptych” will appear in Yin-Yang, the newest anthology from Old Mountain Press, edited by Tom Davis.
