  • Volume/Number/Issue/Date Volume 27 Number 4, Winter 2014
We rarely assemble topically themed issues, and the newly released Winter 2014 issue is no exception. This doesn’t mean that theme is absent from our latest offering—this is a literary magazine, so how could it be?—but amid the grand and ubiquitous subjects of love and death, we note that a fair number of this issue’s authors explore the vexing problem of family, apt given that the season of post-harvest clan gathering approaches. Here’s a brief list of what else you will find: David Kirby, Lesley Wheeler, A. V. Christie, and Tyler Wetherall consider the joys and perils of travel; John C. Hampsey recalls the dangers of his boyhood in Pittsburgh; Kent Nelson depicts the post-familial, RV-park world of swinging retirees, and more.
Featuring the work of Adam Day, Joel Long, Peter Makuck, Richard Newman, Paul Willis, Lesléa Newman, J. Robert Lennon, Paul Cody, Stephanie Barton, and Nivi Engineer. We especially proud of our cover photo for this issue, Pueblo Bonito at Chaco Canyon, New Mexico, by Gerald Plain.

  • Volume/Number/Issue/Date Issue 9
Otis Nebula’s ninth issue features poetry and prose by Andrew Haley, Michael McLane, Rebecca Cook, Peter Golub, Rachel Springer, Jean Kane, Peter Cole Friedman, and many others. It also offers a rare glimpse into the under-appreciated work of Elfie Huntington, an early 20th century deaf photographer.

Her haunting, evocative work is full of dark humor and plenty of surprises.

  • Volume/Number/Issue/Date Volume 21 Number 6, November/December 2014
This issue of Gay & Lesbian Review, which comes out as we complete our twentieth year, started out as a “best of” issue but developed into something more. It does bring back about fifteen pieces from the past, but the authors have offered new introductions and in some cases other new material. And while it is still a “best of” issue, there’s a focus now—a query that GLBT readers have been known to debate at cocktail parties: What was the first gay novel?

Also, an unforgettable story by Belgian author Kristien Hemmerechts appears here for the first time in English, and utterly takes our breath away.
