With the theme of food trucks / word trucks, the fall Antioch Review serves up a variety of dishes to stimulate the intellectual palate. Our essay menu includes a chilling personal essay by Patricia Foster; another by Mark Gustafson about the work of Austrian born poet George Trakl; and a compelling piece by frequent contributor Thomas Cottle about a marginal client. Our fiction and poetry courses are international, including work by American, Canadian, Icelandic and Argentinean writers and set throughout the world. Together all of these word trucks will give you a heady meal.
This new issue—C. Dale Young's last as poetry editor—presents 20 poems from his 20 years at NER, poems that he says "not only never left me alone but actually changed me as a reader and writer," including works by Debora Greger, Brigit Pegeen Kelly, and Carl Phillips. Essays examine age and time, music and notoriety, the great American West, and the mutability of language and rock walls. Fiction writers Jonathan Durbin and Lenore Myka make their NER debut in this issue, and Brock Clarke, Dennis McFadden, and Christine Sneed return to our pages with stories of freedom and slavery, marriage, and a battle-axe. Also, an unforgettable story by Belgian author Kristien Hemmerechts appears here for the first time in English, and utterly takes our breath away.

Elegies, ghosts, and good-byes flood the autumn issue of The Southern Review with haunting and hallowed images of the past, from fond travel memories to long-forgotten childhoods and tributes to lost friends. Gary Gildner's "Timmy Sheean Is a Prime Example" examines vanquished love, while Fleda Brown remembers a long-ago trip to Ireland in "View from Space."
