One of the many reasons AWP is great is because editors haul ass to get new issues done in time to sell them. I picked up a couple things I'm in while at the bookfair. They include:
It's a collection of ghost blurbs from a range of fancy people, all wishing on stars shaped like books for some good old-fashioned reading. You can get it here and you better because it's real pretty.
Also: the ninth issue of Barrelhouse, but it's not available online yet. But when it is, it will be here. "What's the theme?" you ask. Why, Sex Drugs and Rock n Roll, if you must know. "Who in it?" you ask. None other than the likes of Colin Bassett, Joe Hall, Susan McCarty and Brian Furuness, among other literary hippopotami.
Also, right before I left, Dark Sky arrived in the mail and gosh it's good looking. "Who in dat?" you say. Well, let me think: me, Elisa Gabbert, Molly Gaudry, Mel Bosworth and Jensen Beach to name a few. "Where I find dat?" you ask. Dis place. "What it look like?"
Lastly, I have a stamp story floating around out there, so you best be ordering from your favorite small presses and then maybe you get a nice surprise with my name on it.
And dat be dat.
