Literary experience heals the wound, without undermining the privilege, of individuality. --C. S. Lewis
Welcome, all, to our Fall issue!! We are so excited about the new work we have to offer you in this issue, especially the poetry of the West. We had not intended to be a magazine that featured so much imagery-rich poetry about Western landscapes, but we have received so much work in this vein that speaks to us. Even the fiction in this issue, the story “Man’s Best Friend,” a beautiful and haunting tale of the dying American Western traditions, speaks to us in this way.
We have also broken with tradition in this issue in that we have published some of our own words, a meditation on the purpose of literature which we hope will resonate with many of you. We also offer a book review of a book we think you will find interesting: a memoir from the war poet Brian Turner.
