Welcome to Issue Sixty of The Collagist. In this issue, we have fiction from Michelle Chan Brown, Marek Waldorf, Anne Richter (translated by Edward Gauvin), and Nic Leigh, as well as excerpts from Laura Ellen Joyce's The Luminol Reels and Jim Ruland's Forest of Fortune. Our poetry comes from Agustín Lucas (translated by Jesse Lee Kercheval), Landon Godfrey, Megan Falley, and Wesley Rothman, and our nonfiction this month comes from Dustin Parsons.
Our book reviews include coverage of Sorrowtoothpaste Mirrorcream by Kim Hyesoon (reviewed by Sarah Trudgeon), A Highly Unlikely Scenario by Rachel Cantor (reviewed by Dan Lopez), O, Deomcracy! by Kathleen Rooney (reviewed by John David Harding), and Range of Motion by Meagan Cass (reviewed by Lindsey Hauck).
Entries for the 2014 Chapbook Contest have been pouring in, and, if you've been busy finishing yours, the good news is there's still time to get it in—the deadline is July 15, at midnight.
Thank you for stopping by and checking out the new issue. We are, as ever, very grateful for all of our wonderful contributors, and for you, our readers.
Gabriel Blackwell and Matthew Olzmann
