  • Volume/Number/Issue/Date Issue 10, 2014
Co-edited by Kate Bernheimer and Timothy Schaffert—alongside the editorial staff of University of Arizona MFA students in new fully funded positions—the issue contains stories, essays, poems, and artwork inspired by fairy tales, the theme of “emerald,” and the Oz series by L. Frank Baum. These magical and throttling new works show us the imagination’s great breadth—here you’ll find tin cyborgs and dreamers, poignant monkeys, a desultory Aunt Em. And, of course, you’ll encounter Dorothy herself, again and again, twisted and turned by our visionary authors.

  • Volume/Number/Issue/Date Volume 26 Number 1, Spring 2014
Whether left-handed or right-handed (we didn’t ask), our authors found diverse ways to grasp this theme... “The Left Handed Club.” Music was involved in Melita Schaum’s “Rhapsody” and Abyd Chalke’s “The Genius.” Don’t be fooled—you don’t have to be left handed to join “The Left Handed Club.” A left-handed bat might be swung in your direction (see “Bald Mountain Road,” by Robert L. Reich). And the takes on left-handedness will surely surprise you in “North and South” by Jane Gibbish and “Paul Newman’s House” by Lou Fisher. Our poets also handled the theme both adroitly and sinisterly.
