One phrase that comes to mind with respect to the contents is “foreign and domestic,” a term pointing two ways that turns up in federal swearing-in ceremonies and in oaths of citizenship. It also resonates throughout this issue, from the homeland security of “A Family of Interest” in James Gordon Bennett’s Danahy Fiction Prize story to Martin Cloutier’s disturbing “World Brought Close,” with its images of need and vulnerability. Foreign and domestic explorations can stretch the boundaries of the worlds we know, and this issue probes both home and outer limits. Reality is continuously augmented in this issue, cover to cover, starting with digital video and audio layers triggered by the “Augmented Reality” cover art of Kendra Frorup.

In this issue, we discern truth from illusion with award-winning, NYT best-selling author Mona Simpson. From revealing everyday heroes to voicing injustices to showing the courage it takes to face the odds, our fiction and non-fiction sections grapple with the dark to turn it to light. Our poetry section reaches places within. Our Writers’ Craft Box presents a never-before-shared anecdote from one of Amazon’s self-publishing success story authors and the freedom in journaling. Our Writers’ Challenge is a haunting photograph. We review Like a Beggar by Ellen Bass, and we feature responses to our Pay It Forward Initiative. Dive in!
