Issue 16.5 is Leviathan by Joe Wilkins, the winner of the 2014 IHLR Single Author Competition. Of Leviathan, Pulitzer-Prize finalist Laurie Kutchins writes, "There’s alchemy in Joe Wilkins’s poems. Colic, junk, gutted factories, and rotten tomatoes become gold; castaway, castoff things at garage sales become luminous lists of all the things that keep us human.”
This first online issue is very special to us, as it’s a sort of “greatest hits” of our first ten print issues.

We’re pleased to feature work by authors like Terrance Hayes, Jim Daniels, Jan Beatty, Jill Christman, Bonnie Jo Campbell and many others, as well as cover art by Pittsburgh artist, Ryder Henry.
