  • Volume/Number/Issue/Date Volume 26 Number 2, Summer 2014
What puts the brakes on one’s perception of time? What makes time appear to stand still? The brink of potential disaster, for example, skews time into slow motion. Charlotte Hart’s story, “Ten Minutes of the Dog and the Rabbit,” shows this heightened awareness in a captivating way. David Van Houten, in “Ten ’til Forever,” shows both sides of the time warp, from warp speed slowing to an agonizing crawl Our writers explored the phenomenon in many surprisingly sensitive ways. Take the time to read these stories and poems, but be careful where you step. Louis Gallo’s poem, “Footing,” tells why.

  • Volume/Number/Issue/Date Volume 44, Summer 2014
Rattle #44 is another entirely open issue. It’s summer, and poetry has turned up the heat, it seems, with visits to strip clubs and topless swimming pools, and Kenny Tanemura’s brilliant “Ode to Short Shorts.” But it’s not all love and lust: These poems run the gamut of human experience, from churches to trust falls, suicide to salvation. The issue also features several long poems, including Lucas Crawford’s unforgettable indictment, “Your Fat Daughter Remembers What You Said.” In the conversations section, Timothy Green discusses poetry and life in a lively conversation with California Poet Laureate Juan Felipe Herrera.

  • Volume/Number/Issue/Date Volume 47/48, 2014
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.
