The new issue of Catamaran Literary Reader is coming to a bookstore near you

Or to your mailbox, imminently. Here's the brand-new cover by Belle Yang, acclaimed author of Forget Sorrow: An Ancestral Tale, which is sitting right here beside my keyboard while I'm typing this. It's great to see the word is getting out -- internationally-- and how this magazine is bringing together all the various threads of my writing/editing life. For instance, a month or two ago, I got an email from a poet who lives in Vancouver. She read my "Man in the Shoebox" essay in a recent issue of Poets & Writers, which included my bio at the end. The story inspired her not only to buy a copy of The Cactus Eaters at her local bookstore, but to order a two-year subscription to Catamaran. Anyhow, I'm proud to be part of this acclaimed new start-up, and I hope you go out and get a copy of the latest magazine, which will be a heavy hitter.  Here's the line-up for our second issue:

Poetry from...Gary Snyder, Killarney Clary, Aleida Rodriguez, Judith Serin, Casandra Lopez, Dane Cervine, Judith Barrington, Anya Groner, Beatriz Vignoli, Linda McCarriston, Cassie Premo Steele, William J. Harris
